My friends and I have recently began a final college project and we require the use of software version control system. I have used Subversion Tortoise and Silk when I was working as a web developer for a former employer and I thought it would be a good idea to use it.
Although I know how to install and run the client, I have no idea how to configure it to run as a server.
I am currently using an old Acer Aspire laptop running Windows XP as a web server. It already has (of course) Apache 2.2 and MySQL installed via XAMPP. How would I go to install TortoiseSVN so that it makes use of the web directory I made for Apache?
Should I start everything over considering I am using XAMPP or is there another way to do this? I do not mind formatting and perhaps migrating over to a Linux platform.
If I missed something or you need more details concerning my configuration, I'll edit this question.
Thank you in advance.
