I have to setup a server which can allow http vcs management (such as git and svn). svn support works well, but I have some trouble with git. Actual configuration:

  • CentOS 5
  • Apache 2.2.8
  • Git

The /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf content:

Fine, every repository are created by the same way:

   git --bare init "$1.git"
&& cd "$1.git"
&& git update-server-info && chmod -R 770 .
&& cd ..
&& git clone `pwd`/"$1.git"
&& cd "$1"
&& echo 42 > answer && git add . && git commit -m "Initial commit"
&& git push origin master
&& git rm answer && git commit -a -m "Clean repository"
&& git push
&& cd .. && rm -Rf "$1"

Then, on the client side, I try:

~ $ git clone https://s2.domain/git/repo.git
Cloning into 'repo'...
warning: You appear to have cloned an empty repository.
~ $ cd repo
repo $ echo 42 > answer && git add . && git commit -m "init" && git push origin master

I have tried many configurations (even smart http from progit), but a major part of them consider the fact that they have a dedicated domain, but I'm in a sub-directory, so I can't apply these examples. Have you got an idea of the problem? have you got solutions? have you got configuration example with non-root directory?

For your help, In advance, Thanks.
