    Hi,
    I have a server which has many live websites + I there are some development sites are hosted there.

    I need to install Subversion so the development team can connect to the server using a SVN Client.

    I am looking for a good installation guide for this & I am bit lost!
    Basically I installed the "subversion" using the WHM > Install a RPM > subversion

    From there where should I go??
    Appcreciate your input!

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Are you simply wanting the subversion client installed onto the machine or the subversion server itself? There's a difference between the two.

    Also, what is the issue with it working? Are svn commands not functioning or what error are you receiving after issuing what command? The more specific details you are able to provide, the greater likelihood we could point you into the right direction.

    Thanks!

    Many Thanks. Well I need to install the subversion server on my web server. I installed the subversion RPM through the WHM.
    I am not sure what to do after that. I havent use this subversion server before. So I am completely new to this!

    Thanks

    root@alpha [~]# yum install mod_dav_svn

    Setting up Install Process

    You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
    ** Found 5 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows:

    frontpage-2002-SR1.2.i386 has missing requires of libexpat.so.0


    after easyapache and yum install subversion I get this error.Should I try to seek help here or with CloudLinux support? please if anyone has similar issues I would be really gratefull for some help

    The 5 files missing dependencies aren't a major issue, but you could remove httpd* from the yum exclude list in /etc/yum.conf if you'd like. If you do that, it will allow you to add mod_dav_svn. It's a bit of a concern since we really don't want you to add httpd rpms to your machine (and prior threads should have mentioned this as well).

    Apache could quit working as one side effect.

    Would be great to have SVN or GIT installed by default in cPanel.

    luigedelgado - Not either or, but BOTH. Both are essential tools of modern life. I have never run a cPanel server that didn't have need for current versions of both clients - kind of blows my mind that they're not part of the base package.
