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 🙂
AuthName "Subversion Repository"
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 -m option.
Move to the folder, where you want to keep your repositories and create your first repository:
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).
Enter the repository’s URL and click OK, it will be prompted for a login and password. Enter the login information and click OK.
We shall receive a screen that looks like this:
Create some test file inside the checkout repository, Right-Click and Select the SVN Commit:
Enter the comments that describe the purpose of this commit:
It will be prompted for a login and password. Enter the login information and click OK.
The result of the commit will appear in a dialog window.
Congrats! now we have a working SVN server on Ubuntu 12.04 🙂
Hope this will help you!
Please Remember me in your prayers!
