It seems like Mercurial cannot be installed on a VPS?


#1

If I understand correctly I need to edit httpd.conf to make apache run hgweb, and it seems inaccessible to a VPS. Is that correct? Is there another way to use mercurial running on dreamhost? hg is installed and all the commands are there.
A dedicated server isn’t an option for me. Please let me know if I’m missing something, especially if there is a guide somewhere.

Thanks

I’m not a Mercurian, but browsing the hgweb docs, it looks like you can set it up as a CGI script using .htaccess configuration, which is supported on VPS/Shared hosting:
