I have been reading a lot about SVN and am slightly confused. Mostly because of the inconsistency in semantics used. Some will call a directory a repo (even though it hasn't been created as one yet) etc. So I decided I would ask my question as plainly as I can as to not cause any confusion.
What I have done:
I have installed SVN and created an empty repository in
/snv directory called
dts_staging. Now I was under the impression that I could link this
repository (as I understand it) to a directory that already exists. However my attempts have failed.
The directory that exists is
/var/www/Staging/public_html. This is a directory that is full of our websites staging files. How to I link/sync/combine etc (Not sure the right word to use here) my working directory
var/www/Staging/public_html with the created repository
/svn/dts_staging? Would it be easier to create a repo using the
/var/www... directory? If so, how is that done? Any help appreciated!
