Subversion Repository installation


apt-get install subversion


Edit /etc/vhffs/vhffs.conf

   # Use this module or not
   activate        =       yes

   # URL to the svnweb
   svnweb_url      =       ""

   # From: of emails sent by svn commit notifier
   notify_from     =

   # URL to the documentation (optional)
   url_doc         =

Then, activate the bots with a cron file, for example, /etc/cron.d/vhffs

#*/10   *       * * *   root    ionice -c3 nice -n 19 /usr/lib/vhffs/bots/
#*/10   *       * * *   root    ionice -c3 nice -n 19 /usr/lib/vhffs/bots/
#*/10   *       * * *   root    ionice -c3 nice -n 19 /usr/lib/vhffs/bots/

Initiate a new repository

Create a repository through the panel.

SVN using SSH authentication needs full NSS support, please check the local NSS database is filled up with passwd and shadow data.

We recommends you to:

  • Create a chroot for subversion.
  • Not install VHFFS in this chroot.
  • Fill the NSS database from outside the chroot
  • Use a restricted shell service that allows only running the subversion binary, you will find in the VHFFS source tree a dummy shell called tuxshell in the /vhffs-shells directory.
  • Only mount bind, or nfs mount, or whatever mount, the /data/svn directory in the chroot.

Finally, check from your local machine

svn co svn+ssh:// localcopyname
cd localcopyname
svn up
svn add filename #add a file to repository
svn ci           #commit change

WebSVN and ViewVC

Two crons are generating configuration files for WebSVN and ViewVC in /data/svn/conf, we let you find how to use them.

#*/10   *       * * *   root    ionice -c3 nice -n 19 /usr/lib/vhffs/bots/
#*/10   *       * * *   root    ionice -c3 nice -n 19 /usr/lib/vhffs/bots/
