Install subversion on Windows

Tuesday, April 15, 2008 Posted by Andre Broers , , 3 comments
First thing is to download and install the svn binaries from : tigris

after this open a cmd shell and issue the command:

svnadmin create "c:svnrep"

use the editor and edit the file c:svnrepconfsvnserve.conf and uncomment anon-access, auth-access and password-db
### This file controls the configuration of the svnserve daemon, if you
### use it to allow access to this repository. (If you only allow
### access through http: and/or file: URLs, then this file is
### irrelevant.)

### Visit http://subversion.tigris.org/ for more information.

[general]
### These options control access to the repository for unauthenticated
### and authenticated users. Valid values are "write", "read",
### and "none". The sample settings below are the defaults.
anon-access = read
auth-access = write
### The password-db option controls the location of the password
### database file. Unless you specify a path starting with a /,
### the file's location is relative to the conf directory.
### Uncomment the line below to use the default password file.
password-db = passwd
### The authz-db option controls the location of the authorization
### rules for path-based access control. Unless you specify a path
### starting with a /, the file's location is relative to the conf
### directory. If you don't specify an authz-db, no path-based access
### control is done.
### Uncomment the line below to use the default authorization file.
# authz-db = authz
### This option specifies the authentication realm of the repository.
### If two repositories have the same authentication realm, they should
### have the same password database, and vice versa. The default realm
### is repository's uuid.
# realm = My First Repository

Edit the c:svnrepconfpasswd file and uncomment the default users:
### This file is an example password file for svnserve.
### Its format is similar to that of svnserve.conf. As shown in the
### example below it contains one section labelled [users].
### The name and password for each user follow, one account per line.

[users]
harry = harryssecret
sally = sallyssecret

Now the server can be started:

svnserve --daemon --root "c:svnrep"

Open another cmd shell:

set SVN_EDITOR=c:winntnotepad.exe

C:>svn mkdir svn://localhost/myproject

The favourite editor should come up and we can edit a description for the new project. after saving and exiting the process goes on.

Authentication realm: <svn://localhost:3690> bb044873-667c-5c43-ab97-faafa55ddce9
Password for 'abr': *********
Authentication realm: <svn://localhost:3690> bb044873-667c-5c43-ab97-faafa55ddce9
Username: sally
Password for 'sally': ************

Committed revision 1.

C:>svn ls svn://localhost/
myproject/

C:>

The first project is created.

  1. Take a look to VisualSVN Server (http://www.visualsvn.com/server/)

    It setups Subversion + Apache and provides MMC management console.
    And last, but not least - VisualSVN Server is completely free!
