To install SVN server, run this command at the command prompt:
sudo apt-get install subversion libapache2-svn apache2
Make the directory where you want to keep the svn repositories and edit the dav_svn.conf file:
sudo mkdir /svn sudo nano /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/dav_svn.conf
Delete all the data and make it simple like this 🙂
<Location /svn> DAV svn SVNParentPath /svn AuthType Basic AuthName "Subversion Repository" AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/dav_svn.passwd Require valid-user </Location>
To create a svn user , use the following command:
sudo htpasswd -cm /etc/apache2/dav_svn.passwd arbab
We only need to use the –c option for the FIRST TIME, when you create a user, after that you will only use the -moption.
Move to the folder, where you want to keep your repositories and create your first repository:
cd /svn sudo svnadmin create test_repo
Make sure you set the permissions of the /svn directory to apache with the following command:
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /svn
Restart the apache2 service:
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
On Windows machine, Right-Click and select the SVN Checkout, inside the directory where we want to store the working copy (In my case, it’s on desktop).
