mysysGit is installed on Windows but Bitbucket Server fails to start with the following message:

2012-07-10 14:31:33,656 ERROR [main]  c.a.s.i.scm.PluginScmClientProvider git was not found on the PATH for Bitbucket Server. Please add git version 1.7.6 or higher to the PATH and restart Bitbucket Server.


The mysysGit installer modifies the environment variable %PATH% such that <...>\Git\cmd precedes <...>\Git\bin and Bitbucket Server is currently configured to check for Git using "git version" which calls <...>\Git\cmd\git.cmd and fails. The following bug has been raised to correct the call:

BSERV-2536 - Getting issue details... STATUS


Modify the %PATH% environment variable so the path <...>\Git\bin comes before <...>\Git\cmd.
