Hi all, Recently I came across with the $subject and I was unable to find a comprehensive tutorial. So In this post I've decided to show how to install and configure apache subversion server and configure the server to access via http in ubuntu.
First of all update the apt-get by the following command.
sudo apt-get update
Then Install the subversion and it's utilities.
sudo apt-get install subversion subversion-tools libapache2-svn
Create two directories svn and repository in your home directory.
mkdir /home/ubuntu/svn mkdir /home/ubuntu/repository
Next step is to create the svn repository.
sudo svnadmin create /home/ubuntu/svn/repo
Create some folders inside the repository directory.
cd /home/ubuntu/repository mkdir tags branches trunk
Execute the svn import command to import repository.
sudo svn import /home/ubuntu/repository file:///home/ubuntu/svn/repo
Install apache2 server from the following command.
sudo apt-get install apache2
Enable dav_svn apache module
sudo a2enmod dav_svn
Open up the apache2.conf file
sudo vi /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
Add the following to the end of the file.
<Location /svn> DAV svn SVNParentPath /home/ubuntu/svn </Location>
Open up the svnserve.conf file
sudo vi /home/ubuntu/svn/repo/conf/svnserve.conf
Add the following content to the file
anon-access = none auth-access = write password-db = passwd
Open up the passwd file.
sudo vi /home/ubuntu/svn/repo/conf/passwd
Add a user to the passwd file, I'll add username:password as aruna:aruna
aruna = aruna
Restart the apache server
sudo service apache2 restart
Access your svn server using the following url.
That's it folks, Now you have your own svn server.
