I'm setting up a new dev webserver that is on Cent OS 6 with Plesk 10.4. I've had a look around and can't find anything about an SVN module for Plesk so am thinking of just installing SVN and manually setting up each site as a repo.

Is there anything I need to take into consideration when doing this such as permissions/usernames? Or is it okay to just go ahead and treat it like any other installation of SVN?

Okay I've managed to set up SVN on this server. I'm leaving this here in case anybody else wants to see how I did it.

I assumed that you don't need to do anything special just because Plesk is on the system and this turned out to be true.

I followed the instructions here to install and setup svn and then the instructions here to set up the repos.

NOTE: If you use the instructions from the first link then when it comes to checking out your code remotely then the correct url would be svn+ssh://username@yourhost/yourproject as the wrapper script automatically looks in /var/svn/repos/
