    Version Control Software -- PHP

    Hi everyone, here's a question from yours truly -- a non-developer...

    Is there a good version control system for PHP?

    It does not need to run/use PHP. We'll have multiple developers checking in and out files and need to log all changes to the code and user & date/time stamp.

    Thanks for the help.

    You might want to try A.C.E from osicodes.com (they no longer distribute it, but its what your looking for. Contact them for a custom quote)

    There are two extremely widely used free systems: CVS and to a lesser extent, its new competitor Subversion.

    If you're loaded with cash, the absolutely best system on the market now is BitKeeper.

    The most elementary thing about development is that you keep your source code in CVS and back your CVS repository up every day.

    Thanks for the updates. We've used CVS and think its OK. How much is BitKeeper?

    When I last asked them for a quote the price was a bit steep, they don't seem to have their prices out on their site anymore.

    In addition, you might benefit (I know my projects, from small to huge, have) from a bug tracking system. A widely used free system is Bugzilla, but I've had some excellent experiences with a $500 system called JIRA and won't be going back to Bugzilla any time soon.

    Something simpler than Bugzilla would be Flyspray.

    You can check it out at flyspray.rocks.cc
