How to safely install subversion on VPS with virtuozzo and WHM/Cpanel
I was wondering if some of you hard-code pros can give some guidelines on how to safely install subversion on VPS running under virtuozzo and WHM/Cpanel.
Is there any "easy and safe" solution beside those "back-up before you try this"?
For example my nod is:
Apache/2.2.8 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.8 OpenSSL/0.9.7a mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/22.214.171.12435 PHP/5.2.5
WHM 11.15.0 cPanel 11.17.4-C19834
CENTOS Enterprise 4.6 i686 on virtuozzo - WHM X v3.1.0
I'm sure many WHT members would benefit from this guideline too .
I barely know what I am doing but I got subversion to install like this on cpanel on a VPS:
tar -xzvf subversion-1.4.6.tar.gz
tar -xzvf subversion-deps-1.4.6.tar.gz
./configure --prefix=$HOME --without-berkeley-db --with-ssl --with-editor=/usr/bin/vim --without-apxs --without-apache
Note I'm only using it as a svn client.
I could never get the yum install or the perl-UI install to work.
Have you ever thought about switching to a smarter system than Subversion, like either Git or Mercurial? To quote Thorvald, that wrote git, if Subversion is "CVS done the right way", there is "no way to make CVS the right way" because it's a broken concept. After our switch to Git, I cannot agree more!
Switch to Git, it just rox, and you don't need to setup anything on your website to make it work.
