Could someone please help me with having Fossil repository on my website? I think all that needs done is to setup CGI script.

According to its installation docs it is a single C binary. So once you have downloaded its source and built the binary you can place it in ~/bin/ and it can be used globally on your account. After that the instructions covering "HTTP Proxies" would be what you want to look at to get it bound to a domain. You will need to set up a "custom app" in the control panel to generate the port to use,

So basically, 1. Download, build, copy to ~/bin/ 2. Create custom app, write down port number 3. Configure it to use an HTTP proxy on the port specified in step 2.

I don't have a way to build a linux executable but Fossil has prebuilt binaries for download. Is it normal for linux executable to be named simply "fossil"?

Yes, thats normal but you have to set the executable flag on the file.

Correct. Linux does not have forced filename extensions like most other OSs so they can be named anything. It is the execute flag that matters.
