I've set up codestriker with cvs but when I go to the "Create new topic" screen I don't see "Repository" which is shown in the screen shot in the user's guide.
Does this mean that there is something wrong with my cvs setup in codestriker.conf ?
I'm not really clear what this means in the comment in the conf file
# You also need to make sure that the user running your webserver has
# permission to run the client SCM program (eg, cvs, p4, svn), and to
# connect to the repository.
If my webserver runs as user apache does this mean that I need to allow apache to access my repository ? Or do I have to run httpd as an ordinary user ?
Hoping someone can help clear up my confusion !
Sounds to me like your @valid_repositories value in codestriker.conf is empty. You can send me your codestriker.conf file to:
sits AT users DOT sourceforge DOT net.
For you other question - you can use the CVS pserver protocol, so you can specify the username/password details in the repository string. See the configuration file for more details.
Thanks very much for your offer of help. I have mailed you my conf file.
If you only have 1 repository, it won't show up. Try add another dummy repository, and see if it shows up then. I'd suggest change this behavior, since it confused me the first time too.
