Hosting a fossil repo with lighttpd

4 minute read Published: 2011-03-25

I started working in a project, and it was using fossil as it's scm. I cloned it and began doing my stuff, at first it felt weird, as I am a git user, but eventually I got the knack of it and it feels nice and clean, definitely easier than git. However, because I'm not part of the official project (i.e. I'm working on a fork, if you wanna hear git-speak), I didn't have write privileges on the server, so I decided to host my own copy.
