Could anyone tell me how to set up viewcvs and apache to access the
repository via web.
Or any website that has a practices guide about this.



As you did not specified which linux distro you are using.I am using Fedora Core 3 and I have configured viewcvs 0.9.3

put these lines in httpd.conf file or create a file viewcvs.conf under /etc/httpd/conf.d (if you are using redhat )

Viewcvs requires python module for apache.

ScriptAlias /viewcvs "/usr/local/viewcvs-0.9.3/cgi/viewcvs.cgi"
<location /viewcvs>
   AddHandler python-program .py
   PythonPath "['/usr/local/viewcvs-0.9.3/lib']+sys.path"
   PythonHandler apache
   PythonDebug On

in /usr/local/viewcvs directory edit the file viewcvs.conf

and change the cvs_roots = cvs: /pathtoyourrepositories

      for example all my repositories are under the directory /repo

      so my cvs_roots will be   cvs_roots = cvs:   /repo

make sure apache is able to read the repositories under this directory

chown -R apache /repo

set the   default_root = cvs

Restart the apache and I think you should be able to view your repositories.
