I have a test ec2 instance and recently I have moved all my scripts and personal git repo up there, basically as a test machine etc.
I was discussing with a colleague who thought it was a difficult task to install and configure git on ec2, I am not sure where they got this information from and why they thought that.
To install it it's a simple case of typing sudo yum install git
When you get the prompt, just press y and it will be installed, it's that simple.
