In order to get OctoPress up and running in this tutorial series, you’ll need Git installed and configured. Luckily, this is quick and easy.

First, install git and git-core, chances are, if you’ve followed this tutorial in order, you probably have these installed already.

Next, We need to tell git who we are with git config --global "FirstName LastName" and what our email address is with git config --global ""

With this done, you can create and manage git repositories, very important for our OctoPress install later.
