I've been searching the 'net (and this forum) but I can't come up with the required answers... Please bear with me a while and point me in the right direction of this is not the most appropriate place for this query. Thanks in advance.
I would like to install Subversion on a VPS with WHM/cPanel, so that both I and a couple of other people can access/update/maintain a number of files. Until a while back, I was not familiar with Subversion, so I've been doing a bit of reading. I've read multiple posts/blogs/comments scattered around the 'net (I've even started reading the svn book, but it doesn't really address the WHM/cPanel scenario) and the thing seems to be a piece of cake -- with a few caveats! As usual... ;-) The main issue seems to be related to the automatic updates by WHM/cPanel that, apparently, can break svn after it has been installed; at the same time, I want to make sure that anything I do during installation is not going to break our webserver -- several people would be upset and we don't want that, do we?... :-) Since some of the information that I've bee reading is already a bit old, and since some of "tips" are somewhat contradictory, here I am. So... Does anyone here have experience in setting up a subversion repository on a WHM/cPanel VPS? I'm mainly interested in advice from anyone who has actually done it successfully, rather than having read that it can be done. If a comprehensive set of instructions is not available, I'm willing to write something up (based on all the instructions/advice received), and make it publicly available for anyone who wishes to do the same thing in the future.
I look forward to your feedback and I thank you in anticipation for your help.
