Setup a simple Subversion server with svnserve

1. Create a Repository

svnadmin create /svnrepos

2. Create a SVN User

vi /svnrepos/conf/svnserve.conf
In that file add these three lines:
anon-access = none
auth-access = write
password-db = passwd
Create a password file:
vi /svnrepos/conf/passwd
In that file add a line for your user:
# add users in the format : user = password
tony = mypassword

3. Import Your Project

(assuming you’ve put your project files in /projects/myrailsproject)
svn import /projects/myrailsproject file:///svnrepos/myrailsproject

4. Start the SVN Server as Daemon

svnserve -d
Done! You should now have a svn server running with one project named myrailsproject.
Try checking it out of the repository:
svn co svn://
Since we set anon-access to none you should be prompted for username and password which you created in the file /svnrepos/conf/passwd.
