I trying to setup web server for publish git repositories on successfully installed and worked redmine server.

Passenger occurs error: Web application could not be started

GitHttp is a class in released versions of grack (last is 0.2) which does not exist anymore in project's git master branch.

I suspect you updated your grack code to master HEAD without updating config.ru. Your config.ru for master should be like this, with project path replaced :

$LOAD_PATH.unshift File.expand_path(File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/lib')

use Rack::ShowExceptions

require 'grack'
require 'git_adapter'

config = {
  :project_root => "/path/to/your/repos/",
  :adapter => Grack::GitAdapter,
  :git_path => '/usr/bin/git',
  :upload_pack => true,
  :receive_pack => true,

run Grack::App.new(config)
  • Thank you very much. This is solved my problem. I use old article from redmine wiki. And error stops me. – vskubriev Oct 2 '13 at 14:34
