Any chance for the git version upgrade?

  • Answered
When I run git in my shared server, I receive an error:
$ git status
error: Malformed value for push.default: simple
error: Must be one of nothing, matching, tracking or current.

Allegedly it is caused due to the version of git available in the shared host being too old, 1.7.1, as opposed to the current version of 2.3.5 (released on 2015-03-31).
I suppose the old versions do not support the value of "simple" for push.default (and the fact is that is the default setting in the server).
Is there any chance for you to upgrade it?
Hello, Sorry for the problem running git on a shared server. Unfortunately, that will not possible. Git is not usable on the shared server. You may see some commands available through SSH, but its full operation is only available on VPS or Dedicated server accounts as per our installable software reference guide. I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance. Regards, Arnel C.
