Installing subversion with apache on centos

Subversion exists to be universally recognized and adopted as an open-source, centralized version control system characterized by its reliability as a safe haven for valuable data; the simplicity of its model and usage; and its ability to support the needs of a wide variety of users and projects, from individuals to large-scale enterprise operations.

#yum install mod_dav_svn subversion httpd

#service httpd start

Go to subversion.conf in /etc/httpd/conf.d/. Edit as below 

cd /etc/httpd/conf.d/
vi subversion.conf
This is a configuration with username and password for the client  
#htpasswd -cm /etc/svn-auth-conf  rajat --- This command is not needed for the first configuration. 

To create the first user with password 
#htpasswd -m /etc/svn-auth-conf --- use this command to add another user 

Configure your repository 
#mkdir /var/www/svn --- create folder svn 
#cd /var/www/svn --- change diectory to the newly created svn directory 
#svnadmin create repos --- create svn repository named repos 
#chown apache.apache -R repos --- change ownership of 'repos' to apache 
#/etc/init.d/httpd restart --- restart apache

Open you browser and type 'http://localhost/svn/repos'.
