Hello everyone!

We have been investing plenty of personal time and energy for many years to share our knowledge with you all. However, we now need your help to keep this blog running. All you have to do is just click one of the adverts on the site, otherwise it will sadly be taken down due to hosting etc. costs. Thank you.

Steps below will show you how to install and configure git on Ubuntu.

inanzzz@inanzzz:~$ git config --global user.email "your_email@domain.com"


inanzzz@inanzzz:~$ git config --list
user.name=Your Name


inanzzz@inanzzz:~$ git config --global user.email "New Name"
inanzzz@inanzzz:~$ git config --global user.email "new_email@domain.com"


inanzzz@inanzzz:~$ nano ~/.gitconfig

See if your GitHub connection still works.

inanzzz@inanzzz:~$ ssh -T git@github.com
inanzzz@inanzzz:~$ ssh -T git@github.com
