*Setup Subversion (svn) >>
Depends on your linux version use package managers

How can i create respository ?
Create a folder which you want to make as repository.
svnadmin create /path/to/folder
If you check the folder after this comment, you can see some files there viz
conf dav db format hooks locks README.txt
Your Repository is okay now. For more http://subversion.tigris.org/project_packages.html
How can i set a port and host for checkin/checkout and commit the project , simply add contents to respository ?
You can use svnserve for this purpose.
svnserve -d -r /path/to/repository
This will listen the default port 3690. You can access this repository via svn://hostname.com
You can use options –listen-port and –listen-host for changing the port and host .
Then the svn checkout action will be like this : svn checkout svn://host.example.com/project1
How can I set Authentication to this repository ??
You can see a conf directory in your repository folder. There you can see three files
authz, passwd, svnserve.conf
Uncomment the following for setting access control:
anon-access = read // This means anybody can read the repository (checkout)
auth-access = write // Only authorized member can write / update repository
anon-access = none // This means only authorized member can read the repository
* How can i set Access Control ? *
uncomment the following line
password-db = passwd
where userfile is the file which contains username and passwords for the repository
eg of passwd :
sajith = pass123
jilmon = mypassword
vivian = passworrd
balu = testpass
Then come to the last part of configuration file. It is
authz-db = authz (svnserve.conf)
lets see what is inside authz
folder wise permission
sajith = rw
vivian = r
jilmon = r
balu = rw
(above permission is for whole the repository)
You can use * for all
* = rw
