This is the README for how to set up the Fossil/JSON test web page
under Apache on Unix systems. This is only intended only for
First, copy cgi-bin/fossil-json.cgi.example to
cgi-bin/fossil-json.cgi. Edit it and correct the paths to the fossil
binary and the repo you want to serve. Make it executable.
MAKE SURE that the fossil repo you use is world-writable OR that your
Web/CGI server is set up to run as the user ID of the owner of the
fossil file. ALSO: the DIRECTORY CONTAINING the repo file must be
writable by the CGI process.
Next, set up an apache vhost entry. Mine looks like:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/stephan/cvs/fossil/fossil-json/ajax/cgi-bin/
Now add your preferred vhost name (fjson in the above example) to /etc/hosts:
127.0.0.1 ...other aliases... fjson
Restart your Apache.
Now visit: http://fjson/
that will show the test/demo page. If it doesn't, edit index.html and
make sure that:
WhAjaj.Connector.options.ajax.url = ...;
points to your CGI script. In theory you can also do this over fossil
standalone server mode, but i haven't yet tested that particular test
page in that mode.
