How can I configure SVN to deploy when I commit? I would like to deploy when I commit
You need to modify the post commit hook. Placed here:
Change it's name (or create a new one and save that one for future reference) to:
chown it and
chmod it let your svn user (tipically
apache) execute that file:
chown apache.apache PATH_TO_YOUR_REPO/hooks/post-commit chmod g+x PATH_TO_YOUR_REPO/hooks/post-commit
Assuming you want to export your repo's trunk to a local path, here is what I use to automatically deploy to my testing server, which is also my SVN repo server (I do not recommend using this to deploy to production servers, use a custom script for that). This will look for a
**DEPLOY** tag in your commit message and deploy only if that's the case.
#!/bin/sh REPO="$1" REV="$2" if ( svnlook log -r $REV $REPO | grep "**DEPLOY**" ) then svn export --force -r $REV "file://$REPO/trunk" /var/www/html/yourapp fi
look at hook scripts section at Repository Creation and Configuration you can write a shell script to do pretty much anything/anywhere...
