What file paths are speaking of? Hgweb CGI scripts contains a hardcoded
path to the repository so you should tweak it to match you installation.
Try looking into hgweb.cgi and it should be clear what to fix. By default
it contains a dummy path.

If you are using a hgwebdir version you should create a config file
(there're a plenty of examples in documentation) and put it near the
cgi scripts itself.
