Serving mercurial using lighttpd fastcgi

Fuh.. Finally after 2 days of searching and experimenting I've gotten it to work. For the fastcgi part of lighttpd you have to have something like:

"/hg" => (
"bin-path" => "/home/dev/web/hgwebdir.fcgi",
"socket" => "/tmp/hgwebdir.sock",
"check-local" => "disable",
"disable-time" => 1,
"min-procs" => 1,
"max-procs" => 1

Fuh.. That was where I was stuck with the most. For the rest just follow the guide at the mecurial wiki. As for configuring lighttpd authentication (very simple authentication at least :P) please refer to this article at cyberciti.

Now I can get some work done.. :D

The FastCGI hgwebdir.fcgi script requires python flup:

On CentOS:

yum install python-flup
