Update Git

Cloudways is still running Git 2.1.4 released on 18-Dec-2014. A handful of really neat features have been added to Git since then. One new feature that would be very helpful to have on Cloudways servers is the updateInstead option for the receive.denyCurrentBranch config added in Git 2.3, which allows pushing directly to the server even if the branch is checked out on the server. This would eliminate the need to set up a repository on an intermediary server. Users could just add their Cloudways server as a remote in their local git repository and push directly from there to the server.

    My server still runs on git 2.1.4 and the support said it's technically not possible to update. That's a real shame tbh :-(

    Need this for VersionPress too. I can't use the new v.3.0 which requires Git 1.9+.

    Any update since November?

    I am having the same issue . Its worst getting a straight forward response via support team that "We are sorry we cannot help in updating Git version" .

    Versionpress is a great plugin that helps creating a seamless staging experience for WordPress websites. Sadly one cannot use it with cloudways since it needs Git 1.9+ instead of 1.7+ which is currently installed.
