To use SSH for gitsync rather than the GIT protocol.
- Place the OpenSSH private key file in the /root/.ssh directory similar to this example and set permissions to either 0000 or 0400. If permissions are too open it will be rejected.
- Create the file /root/.ssh/config with content similar to this example.
# GitHub git/MYGIT account Host github.com-git HostName github.com User git IdentityFile ~/.ssh/MYGIT_OpenSSH_Private_Key
- SSH gitsync should now work with a playback command similar to this example.
playback gitsync --minimal --diff --show-files --dry-run firstname.lastname@example.org:MYGIT/pfsense.git master
This can also be used with a personal private git server to avoid running a git daemon that exposes the repos to the world.
Replace "MYGIT" with user name.
The "Host" is case sensitive.
The "-git" suffix can be omitted from the host. It is used in examples for clarity.
If the user ID (git@) is omitted from the playback command URL, then the "User" ID specified in the config file will be used.
