    New Ubuntu 12.04 server SVN setup

    Decided to wipe the drives clean and start over, so I can get this set up right. I have found this tutorial that I'll be using to set up the server:
    http://rbgeek.wordpress.com/2012/05/...th-web-access/

    Going to be using this primarily as a Subversion server for team development. If Ubuntu allows it, we would also like to host our alpha/beta tests for the game we are developing, though at that point, we would be okay with splurging for Windows Pro if the software requires it (using CryENGINE 3 SDK). When the game goes live, we'll splurge for real servers, and whatever software is required. Until then, we just need to get something up and running that will make due.

    We have folks from America, UK, and Mid-East. I figure I would post here as I run into questions until I get it set up, to help keep my posts less confusing and/or garbled.

    Re: New Ubuntu 12.04 server SVN setup

    1. What type of "Software selection" should I make when installing the server?

    OpenSSH server
    DNS server
    LAMP server
    Mail server
    PostgreSQL database
    Print server
    Samba file server
    Tomcat Java server
    Virtual Machine host
    Manual package selection

    Does it even really matter, because I'll just be installing software as I need it? I'm thinking start with OpenSSH and then installing apache, and moving from there.

    OpenSSH is typically the only package I select when setting up a server. Once the server is configured, I then add whatever packages I need.

    Check my sig for examples.

    Thank you LHammonds. That helps clarify a lot of Ubuntu for me, actually.

    Re: New Ubuntu 12.04 server SVN setup

    That tutorial worked wonderfully. =)

    Okay, so if I'm using
    sudo htpasswd -m /etc/apache2/dav_svn.passwd <username>

    to make users, what do I enter to delete users?

    Actually, I am the writer of this tutorial

    TO delete the user:
    sudo htpasswd -D /etc/apache2/dav_svn.passwd <username>

    where:
    dav_svn.passwd is the file that contain the users at /etc/apache2/ location.

    -D: Delete the user

    username: the user that we want to delete

    Re: New Ubuntu 12.04 server SVN setup

    I'm having trouble!! This week I needed to completely rebuild my SVN server (upgraded from ubuntu 10.04 to 12.04 in the process). I have successfully restored my subversion repository, but can't get web access working!


    I've done all the steps in the tutorial. Here's my dav_svn.conf

    <Location /home/mySvn>
    DAV svn
    SVNParentPath /home/mySvn
    SVNListParentPath On
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "Subversion Repository"
    AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/dav_svn.passwd
    Require valid-user
    </Location>

    When I try browsing to http://svnserver/mySvn, I get

    The requested URL /mySvn was not found on this server.

    Browsing to http:/svnserver returns "It Works..."

    What am I missing?

    Thanks,
    Denny

    Smile Re: New Ubuntu 12.04 server SVN setup

    That solved my immediate problem; I'm now getting an "Internal Server Error" error:

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@localhost and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
    Apache/2.2.22 (Ubuntu) Server at svnserver Port 80


    But now I have something I should be able to better troubleshoot
