Subversion Notes

I just saw a configuration howto here. I do agree that you can use it to maintain ordinary files beyond source code. That reminded me that I also have some raw notes. While the HowTo showed instructions on  Linux/Debian/Ubuntu, my notes were taken from an install on a system with Solaris installed. There should be no difference on the actual Apache/Subversion configuration. The only thing that I can think of is the method of installing package. For Solaris, I used packages from Blastwave, by using pkg-get command, which is very similar to apt-get.

Thanks to Satish for the configuration example.

Here are the notes:

1. get dev ver of viewcvs 1.0
2. get the following packages
ap2_modpython
ap2_subversion
3. install php5
I also installed ap2_modphp5use htpasswd to create user and password
when creating the first user, pass in the file name
4. cd /opt/csw/apache2/etc
5. ./htpasswd -cm ../etc/srt_auth_file username
6. cd /opt/csw/apache2/sbin
7. ./apachectl start
8. update viewcvs.conf in /usr/local/viewcvs-1.0-dev
svn_roots = svn: /disk2/svnroot
root_parents = /disk2/svnroot : svn
9. Use the following example configuration to configure your instance.

/opt/csw/apache2/etc

httpd.conf

LoadModule php5_module libexec/libphp5.so
LoadModule dav_svn_module libexec/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module libexec/mod_authz_svn.so
LoadModule python_module libexec/mod_python.so

<Directory /usr/local/viewcvs-1.0-dev/www/mod_python>
AllowOverride FileInfo Options
AuthType Basic
AuthName “My SVN Site”
AuthUserFile etc/svn_mysvn_auth_file
Require valid-user
</Directory>

#Begin ViewCVS Setup
ScriptAlias /viewsvn “/usr/local/viewcvs-1.0-dev/www/mod_python/viewcvs.py”
<Location /viewsvn/*>

Require valid-user

AuthType Basic

AuthUserFile etc/svn_mysvn_auth_file
</Location>
#End ViewCVS Setup

#Begin Subversion Setup

SVNPath /export/svnrepos/mysvn

#per directory access control policy file
