Turn on "diffusion.allow-http-auth"
Closed, DeclinedPublic


When creating a Phabricator hosted repository, and trying to serve it over http (even for "Read only"), Phabricator warns that:

NOTE: The configuration setting diffusion.allow-http-auth is currently disabled. You must enable it to activate authenticated access to repositories over HTTP.

When going ahead nonetheless, and saving the changes, the repository status says:

Missing Binary git-http-backend	Unable to find this binary in the webserver's PATH. You may need to configure environment.append-paths.

(assigned to aklapper, as I have no clue who maintains this Phabricator instance, and he could hopefully re-assign correctly)

Reassigning to Chad because I don't feel confident about touching anything related to repository configuration.

Updated diffusion.allow-http-auth to be true.

Still looking at the git-http-backend thing.

Qgil claimed this task.

Let's close this for now. Please reopen if this is needed when we enable Diffusion here.
