Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Something like Bitbucket (of course much less feature-rich). It must be able to hold multiple repositories, and be private (i.e. if you don't login, it doesn't show you anything).

It should be able to run on a Linux server, and if it's also easy to setup (like phpMyAdmin) it would of course be better.

phpHgAdmin seems abandoned and doesn't even have a website, and the others I've seen mentioned don't look very promising. This is usually a sign that "it doesn't exists", but maybe I just didn't search well enough.

See: serverfault.com/questions/287512/… recommends rhodecode.org –  davey Nov 11 '11 at 11:24

The easiest way to share and manage your Git, Mercurial and Subversion repositories over http.

  • Very easy installation
  • No need to hack configuration files, SCM-Manager is completely configureable from its Web-Interface
  • No Apache and no database installation is required
  • Central user, group and permission management
  • Out of the box support for Git, Mercurial and Subversion
  • Full RESTFul Web Service API (JSON and XML)
  • Rich User Interface
  • Simple Plugin API
  • Useful plugins available ( f.e. Ldap-, ActiveDirectory-, PAM-Authentication)

Looks very interesting, much more polished than rhodecode... I'll try it, thanks! –  Lohoris Feb 6 '12 at 15:32
It is also simpler to set up than RhodeCode, since SCM-Manager is kind of self-contained: just add java and you're done. –  alexandrul Feb 6 '12 at 20:56

Nowadays Phabricator looks like a good solution - apparently you can disable any modules you don't want, such as code review, wiki etc.

RhodeCode is a great Bitbucket-like tool you can install yourself.

I like it: it's under heavy development but is already very feature full. I recently installed it for a client and they see good performance with it. They are ~65 developers and have ~50 machines in a build farm that pull from the RhodeCode server.

(a pity I didn't manage to install on OSX, though) –  Lohoris Dec 12 '11 at 9:08
Please contact the RhodeCode developers on their normal mailing list — that's a much better way to ask for support. –  Martin Geisler Dec 12 '11 at 20:43
