I have been trying to run git through apache (ie web based version control) but git is really living up to its name and refusing to cooperate. (Just finished 2 more days of tearing hair out). Now I'm wondering if there isn't some mod_perl weirdness going on.
I have found, after (very) lengthy experimentation the simplest way I can get my error is as follows:
my @out = `cd /test/repo; git commit -m 'msg' 2>&1`;
print "Content-type: text/plain\n\n";
What I do is I set up /test/repo so it has files waiting to commit, make sure everything belongs to apache and then fire the script off in the browser.
What I am finding now is that if I run it immediately after restarting apache it works:
[master (root-commit) 4324b48] msg
Committer: Apache <apache>
Your name and email address were configured automatically based
on your username and hostname. Please check that they are accurate.
You can suppress this message by setting them explicitly:
git config --global user.name "Your Name"
git config --global user.email email@example.com
After doing this, you may fix the identity used for this commit with:
git commit --amend --reset-author
1 file changed, 31 insertions(+)
create mode 100644 file.txt
... but next time I try it (after deleting the .git folder etc and resetting - but not restarting apache) I get
error: unable to create temporary file: No such file or directory
fatal: failed to write commit object
and it doesn't work from then on. I am wondering if mod_perl isnt responsible for this odd behaviour, ie trying to use a cached value somewhere the second time around. Does anyone know a way I can test this?
Otherwise, any general thoughts on what might be going on?
