I cannot speak of bonzai, but I know how ViewCVS works: 1) It accesses the raw RCS files, but does so by calling the rcs function in cvsnt 2) Consequently it does NOT use any particular CVSROOT string since cvs is not used 3) It MUST be running on the same local machine where CVSNT itself is running 4) So you have to set up Apache on that same machine in order to serve ViewCvs I have installed ViewCvs in many locations but for all of these the server was a Windows machine so I have no advice as to installing on Linux. :-( Best regards, Bo Berglund -----Original Message----- From: cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org [mailto:cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org] On Behalf Of Mark Johnson Sent: den 2 februari 2007 00:56 To: cvsnt Subject: [cvsnt] cvs web viewer I'm investigation a web based repository viewer for use with my CVSNT 2.5.03 (server) on Linux. I was looking at bonzai, but see that most of the posts on this site relate to ViewVC. I would be interested in anyone's opinion about these or others, but this is not the main reason for my post. I am more concerned about installing it correctly to work with CVSNT. These both want read-only access to the raw repository. Do they access cvs with a standard CVSROOT? if they don't, or if they only use "local", how does this work since it would be bypassing the lockserver? Does this create a problem? Is it best (from cvsnt's point of view) to run the web server and database locally on the same server as cvsnt, or on a different server, accessing the repository via an nfs mount? I realize this is usually not recommended, but I don't want to bog down my cvs server with unnecessary processes. Any info or previous experience would be appreciated.
