I have tried to host a Mercurial HG repository using a Scriptalias.
ScriptAlias /hg/ "htdocs/hgwebdir.cgi"
If I go to Chrome it display the contents of the cgi file. In IE it does render however images and links are not displayed. In either case the repository I want to display is not shown.
Has anyone managed to get this working with VisualSVN? Also will this work if I have windows authentication and https?
Here's a alternative setup using mod_wsgi (fast!), combined repository directory, and you can manage Mercurial repository level access from the VisualSVN Server GUI.
Download mod_wsgi.so for Apache 2.2 Win32 and place in "C:\Program Files\VisualSVN Server\bin".
Copy hgwebdir.wsgi from your Mercurial installation (contrib directory) to "C:\Program Files\VisualSVN Server\". It should look something like this:
import sys sys.path.insert(0, "C:\Program Files\Mercurial\library") from mercurial.hgweb.hgwebdir_mod import hgwebdir application = hgwebdir('hgweb.config')
Create the config file "C:\Program Files\VisualSVN Server\hgweb.config".
[paths] / = c:/Repositories/*
Paste the following in "C:\Program Files\VisualSVN Server\conf\httpd-custom.conf". You should adjust the Auth* values based on the section of httpd.conf.
LoadModule wsgi_module bin/mod_wsgi.so WSGIScriptAlias /hg "hgwebdir.wsgi" <Location /hg/> AuthName "Mercurial Repositories" AuthType VisualSVN AuthzVisualSVNAccessFile "C:/Repositories/authz-windows" AuthnVisualSVNBasic on AuthnVisualSVNIntegrated off AuthnVisualSVNUPN Off SVNParentPath "C:/Repositories/" require valid-user </Location>
Create a Mercurial repository:
hg init C:\Repositories\hgtest
You should now be able to access /hg through your browser, and manage repository level authorization through the VisualSVN Server tool.
