Local Git Server Setup (using bonobo)

I am trying to setup the Bonobo Git Server to use github on a centralized server. I have followed the instructions given at their documentation. After doing everything as they have described, when I tried to access the Bonobo's git server webpage, I am getting the following error. As I am new to Asp.Net I am not able to completely understand what the problem is.

Can any one please guide me, what is causing this error and how may I solve it?
Plus, if you could tell me any other better Git Server for local setup, that you've tried, it'd be highly appreciated.


I found the folution solution

IIS - this configuration section cannot be used at this path (configuration locking?)

(The chosen answer helped me).

But unfortunately, now a new error appeared saying

Unrecognized attribute 'targetFramework'. Note that attribute names are case-sensitive.

I searched and found this:

Unrecognized attribute 'targetFramework'. Note that attribute names are case-sensitive

Kenik's answer

Registering the framework with IIS is what worked for me: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319>aspnet_regiis -i

helped me solve this problem. And Voilla, I've setup my Local git server finally :)


I've had problems connecting to the server after setting up the server. The following sequence worked for me:

  1. Created an empty Git repository at Bonobo Git Server (In my case: localhost://Bonobo.Git.Server.new/). The Username and Password were admin/admin.
  2. Created the users from the user's management control.
  3. Created an empty repository called newproject, added the users to the repository.
  4. At the client side, I used the following command to clone the repository:

git clone http://username@server/Bonobo.Git.Server.new/newproject.git e.g. in my case it was

git clone http://kamran@Bonobo.Git.Server.new/newproject.git

This cloned the repository at the client side with the warning that the repository was empty. But no problem. I moved into the repository, created some files for testing, pushed them to the server using git push. Now to test, if everything was working fine, I viewed the repository history and my commit was being shown there :) To be further assure, I tried on another client the same procedure i.e. cloned the repository, made some changes and pushed them to the server. After that on my first client, I came back and pulled the repository git pull and the changes were there :)


The Server's firewall must be turned off inorder for the client to connect to the server.
