Want a Subversion server? Your options usually boil down to:
- Pay for an expensive hosted solution.
- Use an unreliable or crippled free hosted solution.
- Wait for your IT department to set one up for you.
- Slog through setting one up yourself.
Maybe setting up a Subversion server is easy if you’re a Linux expert, but, if you’re anything like me, there are a million things that can go wrong in the configs, and no online guide gets all the instructions right.
Well, as of now there’s a better solution. I’m posting a virtual machine image that has a working Subversion installation, tied to Apache. Download it, start it, and you’ve got a Subversion server!
It’s a VirtualBox image running Fedora 14. It includes a README file with instructions on how to start and access svn, and add new users. Download it here:
Unfortunately, I can’t provide any support for this image (I just cobbled it together myself). But I hope it’s helpful!
