Set up SVN server on Ubuntu Linux: A step-by-step guide

If you're looking to set up an SVN server on Ubuntu Linux, you're in the right place. SVN, or Subversion, is a version control system that can be used to manage code changes between multiple developers. In this step-by-step guide, we'll walk you through the process of setting up an SVN server on Ubuntu Linux.

Step 1: Install SVN

The first step is to install SVN on your Ubuntu Linux server. You can do this by running the following command in your terminal:

sudo apt-get install subversion

Step 2: Create a new SVN repository

Once SVN is installed, you can create a new repository by running the following command:

sudo svnadmin create /var/svn/repo1

This will create a new repository at the specified location (/var/svn/repo1 in this case).

Step 3: Configure the SVN repository

Next, you'll need to configure the SVN repository by editing the svnserve.conf file. You can do this by running the following command:

sudo nano /var/svn/repo1/conf/svnserve.conf

In this file, you'll need to uncomment the following line:

# password-db = passwd

And change it to:

password-db = passwd

This will enable password authentication for your SVN repository.

Step 4: Create SVN users

In order to access the SVN repository, you'll need to create SVN users. You can do this by editing the passwd file:

sudo nano /var/svn/repo1/conf/passwd

In this file, you'll need to add a new line for each user in the following format:

username = password

Replace "username" with the desired username and "password" with the desired password.

Step 5: Start the SVN server

Once your SVN repository is set up and configured, you can start the SVN server by running the following command:

sudo svnserve -d -r /var/svn

This will start the SVN server in daemon mode.

Conclusion

Congratulations! You've successfully set up an SVN server on Ubuntu Linux. Now you can begin using SVN to manage code changes between multiple developers.
