Community site: login faq

Basically I need to be able to access my Subversion app from my preferred domain. Ideally via http and the client. Presumably via some kind of transparent redirect or symbolic file mapping.

If cannot be done thru the webapps. Will do whatever necessary to setup things manually on my account (if allowed)

Thanks.

Feb. 14, 2011 UPDATE:

So, kinda reopening this if possible.

What is the url which should be used from within the Subversion client.

And can I customize that as well?

Hi Mick,

This is just a matter of adding your domain to the control panel:

http://docs.webfaction.com/user-guide/domains.html?highlight=domain#adding-a-domain-to-the-control-panel

then hooking it up to the svn application via the "Sites" section of the control panel. There is a guide for creating a site here:

http://docs.webfaction.com/user-guide/examples.html?highlight=4%20minutes#creating-a-webfaction-site-in-4-minutes

In step number 4, sub-step number 4 choose your domain instead of username.webfactional.com.

Woops, turns out this was easy. Just had to set the website to that app. I think the line:

"The front-end web server serves the Subversion application."

In the app install lead me to believe you had to use the webfactional domain. Sorry.

Thanks, I feel bad now for being a bother. See below post. Just missed ya.

Subversion works just like any other applicaiton that you install through the Control Panel. If you have a website record for the domain domain.com, and the subversion application is set to be available at the URL path '/svn', then you would be able to access the application at http://domain.com/svn/

The screencast at http://www.webfaction.com/demos/trac-svn shows how to set up Subversion - it might be helpful.

Yes, but when you work with a SVN repo via a client to checkout etc, it doesn't really go thru http protocol I think. It goes thru svn.domain.com usually. Which I don't think is accessing a web server per se, but I could be wrong.

Checkout from http://svn.domain.net, revision HEAD, Fully recursive, Externals included Server sent unexpected return value (405 Not Allowed) in response to OPTIONS request for 'http://svn.domain.net'

Do I still need to import something after setting up the webapp? Or is an empty repo created? Which can be checked out / filled in that way. I'm accustomed to doing this from scratch, sorry.

Aha,

Turns out, of the two apps I'd setup, I did not setup a website for the one I started to populate first. Sorry, squeaky wheel.
