I want to understand how to go about providing users access to git over
http to manage content that will be stored in their own git repository.
Scenerio: Users signup on a website, upon choosing an account name I will
create a git repository for them on my servers filesystem.
I want to allow users to access their repositories over http, so they would
clone a repository using:
git clone https://username1.example.com/content.git
I don't want to force them to setup SSH, so they should have to enter their
username/password when connecting.
How would I go about creating this sort of setup? I'm confused as to how
them connecting via https and the mapping to their folder will work.
