Okay so I followed this guide: http://docs.webfaction.com/software/mercurial.html

Problems however. If you pick a url and choose https, tortoisehg and even command-line hg will throw errors because the domain does not have a certificate for it. This should at least be mentioned.

The real issue: I set up .htpasswd as specified in the guide. When I try to login, I have to do it 4-5 times before it works.

Here's the output:

tyler@Surak:~$ hg clone http://test.oddco.ca game

Hi,

This looks like a password problem. Are you sure you're entering the correct password the first time?

Yes I am putting in the right password. I do this over and over again, and I get the same repetitive requests to log in.
