Compile git with https support
After installing git from source code, I encountered with the following error when trying to clone (or whatever) repository from https.
fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'https'
Root cause of this issue is, that by default git is not compiled with openssl support.
Of course, first You need to have gcc, openssl-devel, autoconf, etc... But let's get to the point.
yum install expat expat-devel openssl openssl-devel gcc autoconf yum remove git wget https://github.com/git/git/archive/v2.16.2.tar.gz (check for the latest version first !!) tar xvf v2.16.2.tar.gz cd v2.16.2 ./configure --with-expat --with-openssl --prefix=/usr/local make make install
