Is there a Mercurial equivalent to VisualSVN Server? I want to setup an http web server for a mercurial repository that has nested repositories. Using the docs it's very difficult to get what I want.

What is it that you want that hgweb/hgwebdir doesn't provide? – tonfa Oct 16 '10 at 18:38
It's insanely hard to setup. And I don't have time to fiddle around with Python/CGI. I tried for a few hours and nothing worked. – Jeremy Edwards Oct 17 '10 at 1:36

I suggest using RhodeCode which gives you a very nice Mercurial server. Setting it up was not difficult using the nice documentation that comes with it.

Have you looked at the HGInit Tutorial? The Setting Up For a Team section specifically covers this. (There's a web server built into hg.)
