    Subversion

    Hello everybody,

    I have recently read about trac and subversion, and I want to use them to develop my webapps. I have found private hosting for closed-source development using trac, but the thing is, I don't know how to set it all up so that when the files are edited they save on my webserver. I'm new to all of this, but I would love it if somebody could explain how to set this up for web-based development of PHP web applications. Preferably I wouldn't pay for anything (I can easily switch away from the service, it's free and I don't have any files on it yet) Thanks!

    You can easily setup and run svn on your developer machine (no matter unix or windows). svn book (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/) explains the whole story pretty well.

    I want to set it up on my Hostgator server, but they don't have shell access. Is there some way to do it (like save over FTP) to get it to work for a server actually on the internet?

    Also, in Trac, how do you check out a file to edit it?

    Well, I don't think you can run svn on a machine without shell access.
    But you actually don't need to have svn installed on your production server.
    svn is a developer tool , not something for end users.

    stereofrog is right, SVN is only need if you plan to release your scripts to the public and need to allow people download the bleeding edge of your script.

    For example I released a flickr search mod and use svn to allow people to download the lastest updates.

    If you have any plans on a public script use, use Google Code:

    An example project host:
