Not programming question - and have you tried? It looks fine. –  user28457 Feb 23 '10 at 14:51
    
This is the server on which the application is running right now, so I'm afraid to experiment. –  Pavel Druzyak Feb 23 '10 at 15:06

Add the EPEL repository, then install it using yum.

You need to add repository, here's how to do this: wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/RPMForge –  Qwerty Feb 23 '10 at 15:26

Note everyone: git comes in the stranded centos 6 repos but for 5 you will need EPEL or freshmeat etc or from source.

I provide RPMs for git 1.7 in the Webtatic repository, as the kernel.org RPM's are incompatible with CentOS's old rpm installer.
