Many cats know and use github for storing their git repositories, but sometimes you have customers whose requirements don’t allow them to use any public git service. Other times you don’t want to let the world know about your messy coding style, or how do you comb your whiskers or perhaps you are only making experiments.

For all these use cases and many others, you can always create a private git repository. Of course you need to have access to a private server with the required software, note that any common GNU/Linux modern distribution will allow to do this in an easy manner.

How can we create a private repository then? These are the steps to create it.
