Setup Subversion Server on Ubuntu

Step: 1 Installing the Subversion package
#apt-get install subversion
Step:2  Configure Subversion Directory
#mkdir –p  /home/svn/repository
Step 3 Configure Subversion group
#groupadd svn
#chgrp svn /home/svn/repository
#chmod g+rw /home/svn/repository
(you need to make sure that all new files and directories created in the repos directory (in other words, anything committed to the repositories) will also be owned by the group)
#chmod g+s /home/svn/repository
#usermod –a –G svn user1 (Assign users to svn group)
#usermod –a –G svn user2 (Assign users to svn group)
Step 4: Creating a New repository
#svnadmin create /home/svn/repository/test
Step 5: Checkout Repository
#svn checkout file:///home/svn/repository/test
Output: Checked out revision 0
Step 6: Add new files to Empty repository
#cd test
# echo ‘Hello, World!’ > hello.txt
#svn add hello.txt
Output : A         hello.txt
Step 7 : Commit files
#svn commit -m “Added a ‘hello world’ text file.”
Output :
Adding         hello.txt
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 1.
Accessing SVN repository
Step 1:  Configure Users for Access SVN repository.
#vi /home/svn/repository/conf/authz
(Add below entry)
User1 = rw
User1 = rw
User2 = rw
(save file)
#vi /home/svn/repository/conf/passwd
(Add below entry)
(save file)
Step 2: Configure files for authentication
# rm –rf /home/svn/repository/test/conf/authz
# rm –rf /home/svn/repository/test/conf/passwd
#vi /home/svn/repository/conf/svnserve.conf
anon-access = none
password-db = /home/svn/repository/conf/passwd
realm = Team
Step 3: Start repository
#svnserve -d –foreground -r /home/svn/ repository
Step 4 : Test the Repository
#svn checkout svn://ipaddress/test –username user1
Step 5: Initialize the Script at Startup
#move svnserve /etc/init.d/
# chmod +x /etc/init.d/subserve
#update-rc.d svnserve defaults
