Subversion installation on Mac OS X (Panther) 10.3.x (Part 2)

Set up Subversion Repository

Ok, so last time we looked at installing Subversion using Darwin Ports.

Now that its all installed, you’ll want to be getting your Subversion Repository set up, the way I dealt with this was to run

svnadmin create -fstype fsfs /path/to/repository

svnadmin is a binary that darwinports has built with the Subversion source code. You will want to choose a location for your repository, now that was something I had some difficulties in choosing. There were different blogs and tutorials suggesting various locations. I chose to locate the repository in an easily accessible backup location, therefore when I run a scheduled Retrospect script my repository gets backed up.
