Git 2.16.2 comes with a large number of updates versus the previous release 2.15. It is designed to handle small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS.

I will show you the step-by-step installation Git on a Ubuntu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) server.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine).
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
