If you are running a Fossil server on Windows, please share with me
how you set it up. You can respond via private email directly to me
if you like.
(1) Run using "fossil server"
(2) Run using "fossil winsrv"
(3) Using Apache with CGI
(4) Using Apache with SCGI
(5) Using Nginx with SCGI
(6) Via SSH using some kind of SSHD for Windows
(7) Some other webserver (please specify)
(8) Other (please specify)
I have the impression that most if not all Fossil servers on Windows
are run using either (1) or (2). If you are using any of the other
approaches, then I especially want to hear from you.
I played with fossil under windows and, as far as I know, got it to
work. I used the Abyss Web Server. At one time I set up port forwarding
on my router for another little project and friends were able to connect
successfully although they did not access the fossil stuff.
A link in a web page:
Tcl <a href="cgi-bin/fossil/CWind">CWind</a> extension
.../htdocs/Fossil/Repositories contains hardlinks to the actual fossil
htdocs/Fossil/Repositories/CWind.fossil <linked to>
<title>Fossil Repository Not Found</title>
<h1>Fossil Repository Not Found</h1>
I asked some time ago if there was a way to pass more specific
information to the "badfossil.php" page but, since I got no response, I
assume the answer is "no".
