GIT fatal: Unable to find remote helper for ‘https’

Looking for Linux Server Admin or WordPress Expert? We can help.

On a CentOS 6 server, when cloning repo from GIT, i got following error

root@server48 [~]# git clone ~/.vim/bundle/vundle
Cloning into /root/.vim/bundle/vundle...
fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'https'
root@server48 [~]#

This is because git was installed from source and compiled with out SSL support. You need to install openssl-devel package, then recompile git if you are installing from source.

Since CentOS have GIT available in yum repo, it is better install GIT via yum.

yum install git

On Ubuntu/Debian

apt-get install git
