I got a running GitLab server on my Debian Jessie server. GitLab Community Edition is an open-source git repository manager, but also supports code reviews, wiki’s, issue tracking and much more! GitLab is very similar to Github in a way, however you have full control of the server. You are running your own git server.
Normally Github will do all the system administration, upgrades and such for you. They make sure your code is safe and saved no matter what.
