How do I use Subversion?
As of October 2020 Opalstack supports manual Subversion repository creation via
svnadmin and repo access via svn+ssh. Support for HTTPS access to repositories is coming soon!
Create a new shell user. You can use an existing shell user if you wish.
Log in to SSH as your shell user.
Run the following command to create your repository. This example will create a repo named
myrepoin the root of the shell user's home directory:
svnadmin create ~/myrepo
Open a terminal window on your local machine
svncommand to access the repo over the svn+ssh protocol. This example will check out the
myreporepository that was created in the example in step 3 above, using
myuseras the shell user name:
svn checkout svn+ssh://myuser@opalN.opalstack.com:/home/myuser/myrepo
If you're using a GUI Subversion client that supports svn+ssh then you can configure your repo connection to use that same connection URL.
