* FAQ

Q: I’m getting the 403 error?
A: Please make sure that you’ve assigned a user/group to the repository and that the current Hg user account has read/write access to the repository.

Q: Why can’t I use the 80 port in Hg Server?
A: The ports below 1024 are reserved for root users only, but a sandboxed app can’t ask for root privileges, so you can not use those ports in Hg Server.
