My applications dashboard says that the installed version of Git 1.7.4.1 is DISCONTINUED.

Do I need to upgrade it?

I can't find any guidance on how to upgrade Git.

There have been numerous bug fixes since your version of Git was released. There has been a previous discussion on how to upgrade git here in the community. Please consult that post for detailed steps.

If I understand that unanswered question correctly, then I have to build Git myself in a subdirectory of my application directory in order to upgrade?

Wouldn't it be easier to install an updated Git application and transfer the repositories? Is that possible/a safe thing to do?

You can certainly install a new app. Something like the following would be the logical steps.

  1. Make a copy of your existing git app directory.

  2. Delete the existing app from the control panel.

  3. Create a new git app with the same name as the old one.

  4. Copy your repos and config from the copy of the old app into the new app.

  5. Add the newly-created app back to its website record.
