Setup hgwebdir on Redhat Enterprise Linux 4
The serving of multiple repositories over the Web is now described in the Publishing Repositories document together with other related information. However, this guide gives some specific RHEL-related guidance.
- mkdir /var/www/cgi-hg
cp hgwebdir.cgi /var/www/cgi-hg && chmod +x /var/www/cgi-hg/hgwebdir.cgi
- vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/hg.conf
ScriptAliasMatch ^/hg(.*) /var/www/cgi-hg/hgwebdir.cgi$1 <Directory /var/www/cgi-hg/> Options ExecCGI FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None </Directory>
- touch /var/www/cgi-hg/hgweb.config
- /etc/init.d/httpd reload
http://BASEURL/hg should now show an empty hgwebdir interface
- copy or symlink a hg repository, say "myproject" into /var/www/cgi-hg
- vi /var/www/cgi-hg/hgweb.config
[paths] #VIRTUAL_PATH = /REAL/PATH myproject = myproject # [collections] # /prefix/to/strip/off = /root/of/tree/full/of/repos # collections example: say directory tree /foo contains repos /foo/bar, # /foo/quux/baz. Give this config section: # [collections] # /foo = /foo # Then repos will list as bar and quux/baz.
