Subversion

Subversion Book

Creating a repository

  $ sudo mkdir /var/www/svn/repos/<repo_name>
  $ sudo svnadmin /var/www/svn/repos/<repo_name>
  $ sudo chown -R apache:apache /var/www/svn/repos/<repo_name>

Loading a repository from a dumpfile

  $ sudo svnadmin load /var/www/svn/repos/<repo_name> < /path/to/dumpfile
  $ sudo chown -R apache:apache /var/www/svn/repos/<repo_name> 

Dumping a repository

  $ sudo svnadmin dump /var/www/svn/repos/<repo_name> > dumpfile

Recovering / unlocking repository

  • subversion may lock if user ctl-c during checkout or checkout is interupted with an apache restart
  • Need policy on who to contact and who can run 'svnadmin recover' as

priviledged access is needed (may need to stop/start apache to drop requests to repository before recover)

Subversion was upgraded to version 1.4.3 (30 Jan. 2007) to reduce the repository locking problem if ctl-c used to end a checkout.

If the repository locks the following command should be used to recover the repository:

  $ sudo svnadmin --wait recover /var/www/svn/repos/<repo_name>
  $ sudo chown -R apache:apache /var/www/svn/repos/<repo_name>

In most cases this will work in the odd case that you are waiting a very long time for the command to run then apache may have to be restarted to drop anything accessing the repository and preventing the repository from being recovered

  $ sudo /sbin/service httpd restart
  $ sudo svnadmin --wait recover /var/www/svn/repos/<repo_name>
  $ sudo chown -R apache:apache /var/www/svn/repos/<repo_name>
