I found an article about setting up Fossil on Dreamhost, and may try to go through it today.
First, I will set up a new sub-domain and new user on Dreamhost.
Done. I recognize that I am using git on a server for Fossil, but am going to ignore that for now.
Though the previous article compiled from source, it appears Fossil provides Linux binaries now.
Fill in the latest version number for … below
wget https://www.fossil-scm.org/index.html/uv/fossil-linux-x64-.....tar.gz tar xf fossil-linux-x64-.....tar.gz mkdir ~/bin mv fossil ~/bin/
And the I appended bin/ to the PATH by adding this to ~/.bash_profile
I just read that the author of other article did not put it in PATH, but I like to fool around on command line, so it’s good for me.
Now, to see if I can access it via https as a CGI script
mkdir ~/publicrepos cd ~/publicrepos/ mkdir repooo echo world > repooo/hello.txt fossil init -A rob repooo.fossil
Note password for user
fossil open repooo.fossil fossil user default rob fossil add repooo/hello.txt fossil commit
I set up
.htaccess in root of public webserver,
<Files repos> SetHandler cgi-script </Files>
/home/USERNAME/domain.com/repos: (In the file below, change USERNAME below to the username of your
#!/home/USERNAME/bin/fossil directory: /home/USERNAME/publicrepos notfound: /404.html repolist
Oh cool it works!

Okay, now I have kinda figured out a system for adding my journal git repo to fossil:
Move to my existing git repo on local machine:
git fast-export --all | fossil import --git journal.fossil
I think this will help me update the fossil repo again by creating files to link the leaves and nodes of the two repos (or something)
fossil export --git --export-marks ../journal.fossil.marks journal.fossil | \ git fast-import --export-marks=../journal.git.marks
And now after I
git commit I can run this to get the latest into
fossil (I think)
git fast-export --import-marks=../journal.git.marks --export-marks=../journal.git.marks \ --all | fossil import --git --incremental --import-marks \ ../journal.fossil.marks --export-marks ../journal.fossil.marks journal.fossil
I was then able to scp the journal.fossil file to https://fossil.chatforest.com/repos/, then change the password for thunderrabbit from its default.
Now, how do I add the remote to my local Fossil so I can push changes to it?
fossil sync --ssl-identity ~/.ssh/fossil.chatforest.com ssh://USERNAME@fossil.chatforest.com/path/to/journal.fossil
And set up auto synchronization
fossil set autosync
