How to Clone a Git Repository in cPanel?

You are here:

The Git Duplicate Management is an innovative feature released by cPanel in its latest update in version 72. The new feature allows you to easily host a private or public Git repository in your cPanel account. You can utilize Git to manage any set of files (for instance, a website’s files and assets, a software development project, or simple text files).

Git was designed for the Linux kernel, and it is very popular with the development community. By using the Git Duplicate Management feature, you can also replicate a repository that already exists on the Web directly into your cPanel account.

Git records all changes we have made on the Git-managed content such as code, text files, etc. And it also stores the history of every line you have modified. In other words, Git stores the data as a sequence of snapshots. In this documentation, we have discussed how to replicate a Git repository on cPanel.
