Reproduce the issue

Description from the user

  • I've disabled the LF in the global settings "Admin / Settings / VCS".
  • I've nothing configured regarding LF in the .hgrc.
  • I've created a new repo with LF enabled in "Options / Settings / VCS"
  • When I push a repo with LF on it, I face:

abort: does not appear to be a largefile store

Local reproduction

  • [X] Start with an empty database
  • [X] Disable largefiles
  • [X] Add a repo
  • [X] enable largefiles for the repo
  • [X] Push largefiles into the repo

Creating an empty system

paster setup-rhodecode dev-empty.ini --user=admin \ --password=secret --repos=$HOME/tmp/repos-empty


  • Version 3.7.1 is not fit regarding the largefiles setting, we should encourage users to upgrate to 3.8.0 which got a log of improvements in largefiles to make the user experience better.
  • No follow up needed, since we have this fixed and I think that we have this even covered in our ac-tests.
