Then the service parameter should be ignored by your webserver, and it
should just serve the info/refs file from the repository on the
filesystem. And you are stuck using WebDAV for push.

Does the info/refs file exist in the project-x repository?

Did you?

If you can't run any git programs on the server at all (and it sounds
like that may be the case), you'll need to run it locally before putting
the repository data on the server.

Once you have WebDAV set up for pushing, it will update the info/refs
file for each push. But if you are initially seeding the server with
rsync or a tarfile, you'll want to make sure it has an up-to-date
info/refs file.
