Unable to connect to Bitbucket Server
The following appears when trying to clone the repository in Bitbucket Server:
fatal: http://email@example.com:7990/scm/PROJECT/repo.git/info/refs not valid: is this a git repository?
Certain combinations of git and libcurl don't cope with the response body Bitbucket Server used to return up to version 2.0.3.
|GIT Version||Curl version||Works?|
This seems to particularly affect CentOS which ships with somewhat old versions of libcurl. E.g. CentOS 6.3 with curl-devel-7.19.7; CentOS 5.8 with curl-devel-7.15.5.
Workaround: Preferred: upgrade to Bitbucket Server 2.0.3 or 2.1 or higher. If that isn't possible, please use a version of git that is known to work or compile git against a more recent version of libcurl.
curl -OL http://curl.haxx.se/download/curl-7.28.1.tar.gz tar xfz curl-7.28.1.tar.gz cd curl-7.28.1 ./configure --enable-http --prefix=/opt/curl-7.28.1 make sudo make install
make configure ./configure --prefix=/opt/git-188.8.131.52 --with-curl=/opt/curl-7.28.1 make sudo make install
Use Git Client version 184.108.40.206 or lower to connect to Bitbucket Server.
Upgrade to Bitbucket Server 2.0.3+ that has fixed the bug.
