This is not specifically a Rails question, but I figure that someone here might know enough about git to help me.
Here is the situation.
I had set up a private Git Repo server for my companies projects. For testing I did everything as root. Now that I am ready to allow others to access the Git Repositories on there I have copied the bin files from /root/bin to /usr/bin and created a new repository for the main line of code that I am working on /var/git/project. I pointed my local repo to that as the new origin.
When I do a push to the repository I get the following after the compression routine:
Failed to run command 'index-pack': Permission denied
error: pack-objects died with strange error
error: failed to push some refs to 'firstname.lastname@example.org:/var/git/project.git'
When I shifted the bin files from /root/bin I did not see a file called git-index-pack. Other git commands seem to be working as normal both as root and as gituser.
Does anyone know what could be wrong.
Thanks in advance,
