Install and start Git on Linux

To install and start Git on Linux, you can follow these steps:

Check if Git is Already Installed:

First, check if Git is already installed on your Linux system by opening a terminal and running the following command:

git --version

If Git is already installed, you will see the version number. If not, you will need to install it.

Install Git:

To install Git on Linux, you can use the package manager specific to your distribution. Here are the commands for some popular package managers:

Ubuntu/Debian:

sudo apt update

sudo apt install git

Fedora:

sudo dnf install git

CentOS/RHEL:

sudo yum install git

Arch Linux:

sudo pacman -S git

Replace the package manager commands with the appropriate one for your Linux distribution.

Verify Installation:

After installation, verify that Git is now installed by running the version command again:

git --version

Configure Git:

Once Git is installed, you should configure your username and email address. Open a terminal and run the following commands, replacing "Your Name" and "your.email@example.com" with your actual name and email address:

git config --global user.name "Your Name"

git config --global user.email "your.email@example.com"

Start Using Git:

You can now start using Git on your Linux system. Navigate to the directory where you want to initialize a new Git repository or clone an existing one, and use Git commands as needed.

That's it! Git is now installed and ready to use on your Linux system. You can begin version controlling your projects and collaborating with others using Git.

Experiment No. 5 Title: Applying CI/CD Principles to Web Development Using Jenkins, Git, and Local HTTP Server

  Experiment No. 5 Title: Applying CI/CD Principles to Web Development Using Jenkins, Git, and Local HTTP Server  Objective: The objective of this experiment is to set up a CI/CD pipeline for a web development project using Jenkins, Git, and webhooks, without the need for a Jenkinsfile. You will learn how to automatically build and deploy a web application to a local HTTP server whenever changes are pushed to the Git repository, using Jenkins' "Execute Shell" build step. Introduction: Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) is a critical practice in modern software development, allowing teams to automate the building, testing, and deployment of applications. This process ensures that software updates are consistently and reliably delivered to end-users, leading to improved development efficiency and product quality. In this context, this introduction sets the stage for an exploration of how to apply CI/CD principles specifically to web development using J

Experiment No. 6 Title: Exploring Containerization and Application Deployment with Docker

  Experiment No. 6 Title: Exploring Containerization and Application Deployment with Docker  Objective: The objective of this experiment is to provide hands-on experience with Docker containerization and application deployment by deploying an Apache web server in a Docker container. By the end of this experiment, you will understand the basics of Docker, how to create Docker containers, and how to deploy a simple web server application. Introduction Containerization is a technology that has revolutionised the way applications are developed, deployed, and managed in the modern IT landscape. It provides a standardised and efficient way to package, distribute, and run software applications and their dependencies in isolated environments called containers. Containerization technology has gained immense popularity, with Docker being one of the most well-known containerization platforms. This introduction explores the fundamental concepts of containerization, its benefits, and how it differs

Experiment No. 10 Title: Create the GitHub Account to demonstrate CI/CD pipeline using Cloud Platform.

  Experiment No. 10 Title: Create the GitHub Account to demonstrate CI/CD pipeline using Cloud Platform. Objective: The objective of this experiment is to help you create a GitHub account and set up a basic CI/CD pipeline on GCP. You will learn how to connect your GitHub repository to GCP, configure CI/CD using Cloud Build, and automatically deploy web pages to an Apache web server when code is pushed to your repository. Introduction: Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines are essential for automating the deployment of web applications. In this experiment, we will guide you through creating a GitHub account and setting up a basic CI/CD pipeline using Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to copy web pages for an Apache HTTP web application. Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) is a crucial practice in modern software development. It involves automating the processes of code integration, testing, and deployment to ensure that software changes are co
