Arrow Mercurial-server and apache MERGED...

Hey all

I'd like to ask if it's possible to change mercurial-server repository location "/var/lib/mercurial-server/repos" to "/var/www/html" so that when I push changes to my server I automatically can see the changes in the browser?

I tried to ln -s, but I get a 'permission denied'.

Did not got much info. Can you please paste the complete ln -s command so that it will show what you are trying to achieve?

Thanks for the reply and sorry for misleading info.

The ln -s actually worked perfectly, but the problem occurs when I try to push repository from my home location i.e. "hg push ssh://". I get " remote: abort: could not lock repository repository_name: Permission denied ".
There is obviously something wrong with permissions, but I tried to chmod and chown resulting in same error.
