Hello!

I am attempting to set up multiple subversion repos on my account. I made a Static/CGI/PHP application and set it up as a subdomain with https enabled, https://svn.mydomain.com. I've been able to make two repos I needed without any problem so far (svnadmin create reponame) however when I try and checkout each repo I am unable to and am met with an error. For example:

$ svn co https://svn.domain.com/moesburgers/trunk svn: OPTIONS of 'https://svn.domain.com/moesburgers/trunk': 200 OK (https://svn.domain.com)

or with http

$ svn co http://svn.domain.com/moesburgers/trunk svn: Server sent unexpected return value (405 Not Allowed) in response to OPTIONS request for 'http://svn.domain.com/moesburgers/trunk'

You cannot use Static/CGI/PHP apps to serve Subversion repos.

Instead, you should create a separate Subversion app in the control panel for each repo that you want to serve, and then serve those apps on whatever URL path you need for your site.

For example:

  • Create a Subversion app named 'moesburgers'
  • Add that app to your svn.domain.com site with '/moesburgers' as the URL path

Hope that helps!

I'm intending to use these repos for various clients, to do what you described sounds like it would definitely work however doesn't seem as efficient as I previously assumed. I guess that's why they say when you assume you make an ass out of u and me.

Thanks for the answer! Definitely will solve the problem - was just looking forward to flexing my terminal skills!
