WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Caveat: I'm not familiar with Git.

I installed the one-click git application using the control panel, and set up an initial repository following the WebFaction instructions.

The blog mentions:

" As a bonus, you get a slick web interface for your all your repositories, complete with history browsing and syntax highlighting: "

How do I setup/access that, so that I can browse my source code from the web?

You'll need to set up a new site for your Git application.

Once this is done, you'll be able to view your code online at the domain you chose.

I just tried that, but get this error:

Firefox can't find the server at git.salathegroup.webfactional.com.

It's working for me. You need to allow some time for DNS propagation after you create the new domain - if you checked the site before DNS had propagated, then you need to flush your local DNS cache and try again.

Hi, It could be because that it needs a .htpasswd to work. Have you create a .htpasswd file? If not you could try: http://docs.webfaction.com/software/git.html#add-a-user-or-change-a-password

If it still does not work please file a support ticket with us.

Hope that helps!

Yep, that is exactly what it was. I created a .htpasswd file and it worked like a charm.

P.S. I by mistake deleted my last comment. I was trying to edit it and clicked the (X) rather and boom! it went into the wasteland.
