You may want to higher version of Git if you use Visual Studio Code (a.k.a. vscode) - its version will be Git 2.x probably. In that case, you can install by WANDisco repo package easily.

STEP 1. Install WANDisco repo package

yum -y install http://opensource.wandisco.com/centos/7/git/x86_64/wandisco-git-release-7-2.noarch.rpm

You can try below if above does not work

yum -y install https://packages.endpoint.com/rhel/7/os/x86_64/endpoint-repo-1.7-1.x86_64.rpm


STEP 2. Install the latest version of Git 2.x:

yum -y install git


STEP 3. Verify the version of Git that was installed:

git --version


STEP 4. Set git commit username and email address type

git config --global user.name "Your Name"
git config --global user.email "youremail@yourdomain.com"

To verify the changes:

git config --list

Output:

user.name=Your name
user.email=youremail@yourdomain.com

The configuration settings are stored in the ~/.gitconfig file


As of  , I was able to see its version 2.22.0 for your information.
