There are a number of hosting services for git, Mercurial, etc. I need to host my own, because some of the data we want to keep there is of a sensitive nature, and we cannot move it off-site.
I need to host a Mercurial repository on a server so that a number of people can access it to both pull changes and push their own work. There needs to be some kind of password protection, and it could also use ssh. I would prefer HTTP(S) as the transfer protocol (a la Google Code) though, if possible.
Can somebody point me to a description of how to do this? I have only found descriptions for hosting single-user repositories and hosting services so far, but nothing about doing the multi-user hosting myself.
Have a look at the PublishingRepositories page on the mercurial site. It will tell you how to set up the
hgwebdir.cgi script for serving multiple repos over https.
Once you've configured it, I would recommend adding this to your hgrc:
[web] style = gitweb
I find it's a bit nicer theme than the default.
