I would like to start using Unfuddle for my project on 1&1 server. I never used subversion and core control before.

So, I read a lot of documentation about it but each time, I get lost at the very beginning :

I've downloaded the latest version of subversion. But on every tutorial, the way to follow is different.

First I sae, on a lot of tuts, that you have to enter command lines. Is that ONLY for Linux ? Like here : http://chwalisz.org/2007/08/05/subversion-on-11-shared-hosting/

I also find something completely different on some website, I think (correct me if I'm wrong) it is the Windows tuts, deeply different frm the linu one.

So I found that :


And I don t understand : Do I still have to put the sibversion file on the server ? Do I have to install Apach ? where, on my computer or on my server ? I'm working ith WampServer so I thing I have already Apach installed right ? When they say it is for Windows, do they mean it is for windows servers or for your own OS ? 'Cause my servers are on linux.

How could I install Subversion on a 1&1 linux server from my W7 OS computer ?

Thanks, that's a lot of question but that realle messy in my mind, I can't find something clear ..

Have a look at VisualSVN server - it's a fully packaged implementation with an installer. –  Nick Apr 5 '12 at 15:31
Will visualSVN allow me to use Unfuddle ? –  Miles M. Apr 5 '12 at 15:38
Are you wanting to setup a subversion server or just use a subversion client? Based on you mentioning Unfuddle I am assuming you just want to install the svn client and you don't need to worry about the server as Unfuddle is providing that for you. In which case use something like tortoisesvn.net –  Greg Whitaker Apr 5 '12 at 18:26
Ho, that mean that the links on my post are related to the server side taht I don t need If Iuse Unfuddle ? so once I got the right files on my server, what do I need to do ? 'Cause on the Unfuddle page, they say : "Unfuddle offers you direct access to your Subversion repository over http, or https for certain plans. Once you have the Subversion client installed on your development machine, accessing your project repository is simple. svn checkout quantumllc.unfuddle.com/svn/name_of_my_company local_directory_name" –  Miles M.

Download TortoiseSVN for Windows. It is packaged as an MSI. Install it and you are set. –  Greg Whitaker Apr 5 '12 at 19:42
