What is the purpose of Git?
Git gives you a way to not only track changes in source code, but it can also be used to track changes in files. It then stores the data in what is called a repository, also known as a repo. In short, Git is a tool used as a version control system (VCS), allowing you to distribute changes from your local machine to the repo and vice versa. In this tutorial, we’ll be instructing on how to install and configure git onto an Ubuntu 18.04 server.
