Installing a SVN repository in an ispconfig managed website

    I have a question for people that already managed to make this work (I’ve not tested it so far, just gathering information before trying).

    What I want to do is install a SVN repository (or github or whatever, just tell me if you use something else) on one of the sites managed with my ispconfig interface (yes it should be browsable).

    So is this possible without too much problems and if yes, do you have any useful information on how you did this ?

    Thanks in advance.

    if i understood u correctly, you want to create a new module to create svn repositories. If that is the case, then i would recommend following the developer guidelines and use a shell script that you call with php that you give the correct parameters, which differ for each user, however, i would use this howto to find out how you would setup an svn repository, and then write a shell script for it .. when that works, start creating the shell script with parameters that you give it through the php shell call

    as said, hope this is what you wished for :p shouldn't be too much of a problem

    Ahem well no not exactly :D

    My problem is the following :

    One of the guys I’m working with is developing a php/mysql website on my server hosted with ispconfig. Fine so far. Problem is, a second guy in my company has to work on it too and will probably work on the code at the same time as the first guy.

    So, those guys are asking me to find a way to be able to use svn in order to develop their website. This is why I’m looking for svn on an ispconfig managed website.

    To be honest I never worked with svn, I basically know what it’s good for, but that’s it. So since it seemed not compatible with ispconfig, I am asking if someone already tried this (with success).

    I hope this makes it a bit easier to understand.

    There is no compatabilty issue with ISPCONFIG and Subversion. Install it as you would with any other server. (Been there, done that: I simply followed the standard installation instructions - nothing different.)

    As germinator said, it only gets complicated/interesting if you want to make an svn module for ISPCONFIG

    Tanks for the answer :)

    By the way, I just finished installing my svn repository and it works indead like a charm.

    I just had to add this line in the apache directives (from the ispconfig tab), since apache was acting a bit weird, it looked like an issue with commit or something :
