Is Apache2 Needed for Subversion?

I'm trying to setup SubVersion on my CentOS 4.4 server, but I have read that Apache2 is needed to access CentOS via http. Is cPanel support for Apache2 still only in the Edge builds? If so is anyone using it and is it stable enough for use in a non-testing environment?

If not are there other ways I can get SVN working? Either without Apache2, or having both version of Apache.

Thanks for any help :)

No, it is not necessary to install Apache v2.x to get SVN working on your server. SVN works just fine with Apache 1.3.x.

Go to: http://summersoft.fay.ar.us/pub/subversion/latest/
and pick the version that's compatible with your OS. It is that simple :)

Apache is only needed if you want to use the web interface of the subversion server. If you only use svnserver and svnclients then you don't need apache. You only need to install the packages below:

subversion-tools
subversion-perl
subversion

Their rpms are available on subversion site.
