    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/5.0.2.2635 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 .

    Cheers!

    Installing subversion is fairly simple if you follow their instructions, I've never had one problem with installing it on a virtuozzo based system.

    An easy way to do it is download the rpmforge-release for your CentOS version, find &install* the correct perl-URI rpm, and then yum install subversion.

    Good luck.

    Is there any option to install it via WHM/Cpanel, like some cpaddon...?

    Also a step-by-step guide would be very useful .

    Thanks!

    yum install subvrsion - works great.

    I can't get it to import though

    That's the easiest part I think. My problem is I don't know how to tell apache to listen some port so I can access SVN over web dav.

    I barely know what I am doing but I got subversion to install like this on cpanel on a VPS:

    Code:
    wget http://subversion.tigris.org/downloads/subversion-1.4.6.tar.gz
    wget http://subversion.tigris.org/downloads/subversion-deps-1.4.6.tar.gz
    
    tar -xzvf subversion-1.4.6.tar.gz
    tar -xzvf subversion-deps-1.4.6.tar.gz
    cd subversion-1.4.6
    
    ./configure --prefix=$HOME --without-berkeley-db  --with-ssl --with-editor=/usr/bin/vim  --without-apxs --without-apache
    make
    make install
    Note I'm only using it as a svn client.
    I could never get the yum install or the perl-UI install to work.

    Hi,

    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.

    Teknoledge,

    Look for a tutorial on Apache's VirtualHosts - that is what you will need to forward a port to webdav.
