I have tried running git instaweb start in two different repositories. In one it works fine, and indexes all the repositories in my home directory (even though run in a subdirectory). When run in another the web site simply says "404 - No projects found".

More information:

  • The top-level repository directories both have the same owner and permissions.
  • The "non-working" repository has an @ sign in the directory name.

Found a likely cause while writing the question: Cloning the repository to a directory without the @ character in the name fixed it.
