Subversion is a revision control system with a central repository.

This article describes how to set up a subversion server. It has been tested with SUSE Linux 11, but should work for other distributions as well.

Contents

Install it

Install the subversion software:

yast -i subversion

Then add a subversion user and its group:

useradd -m svn
groupadd svn

Find out where subversion expects its repository

/etc/init.d/svnserve start
Starting svnserve svnserve: Root path '/srv/svn/repos' does not exist or is not a directory.
                                                                     failed

Create the respective directory

svnadmin create /srv/svn/repos

Start the subversion server

/etc/init.d/svnserve start

Now add user rights management to your subversion. Modify /srv/svn/repos/conf/svnserve.conf:

anon-access = read
auth-access = write
password-db = passwd
realm = My First Repository

Run it

svn co svn://localhost
Checked out revision 0.

Check out your repository using

svn co svn+ssh://root@localhost/srv/svn/repos/
Password:
Password:
Checked out revision 0.

Add your first directory

cd repos/
ls
.svn
svn mkdir trunk
A         trunk
svn commit -m "myfirst"
Password:
Adding         trunk

Committed revision 1.

Show it in the web

To make your subversion repository browsable from a web browser, have an apache server running on the same server and install ViewVC. You will need to adapt /etc/sysconfig/apache and /srv/viewvc/viewvc.conf
