WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hi,

Webfaction documents have been super detailed, easy to follow and very helpful so far... I've been trying to set up Git by reading webfaction git doc and it seems like the doc may be missing some steps.

I've never set up Git or Mercurial before, and I just have hard time setting it up from looking at the document.

1) For example, after I create one click application for Git, do I have to create a subdomain/website that points to the repo or to the project?

2) Also, the doc mentions "git clone url path". It would be really nice to see some example of what that url might be... is it http://git.something.com/proj.git or http://something.com/repos/proj.git? Does it depend on how I set it up on 1)?

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

David.

Hi David,

1) You do need to create a Web site record for the git repo using '/' as the root and using the git app as the app. We don't have the instructions directly in there since the set up depends on how you are going to be using the application.

2) The path varies depending on how you set up the web site from step 1, but say you were using git.something.com as the web site then:

git clone http://git.something.com/proj.git

Would be the correct path to choose.
