Installing Subversion (SVN) on CentOS 7

Subversion, commonly known as SVN, is an open-source version control system that allows multiple developers to work on the same codebase simultaneously. It tracks and manages changes to files and directories over time, enabling you to revert to previous states, track modifications, and collaborate efficiently.

To install Subversion (SVN) on CentOS 7, follow the steps below:

$ sudo yum update
$ sudo yum install subversion mod_dav_svn

Edit the Subversion configuration file /etc/httpd/conf.d/subversion.conf using a text editor:

$ sudo vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/subversion.conf

Update the file to reflect your desired configuration. Here's a basic example:

   DAV svn   SVNParentPath /var/www/svn   AuthType Basic   AuthName "Subversion Repository"   AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-users   Require valid-user 

Make sure to replace /var/www/svn with the path to the directory where you want to store your Subversion repositories. Also, specify the path to the authentication file /etc/svn-auth-users and set up users and passwords accordingly.

$ sudo mkdir /var/www/svn
$ sudo chown apache:apache /var/www/svn
$ sudo touch /etc/svn-auth-users
$ sudo htpasswd -cm /etc/svn-auth-users your_username

Replace your_username with the desired username. You will be prompted to enter and confirm a password.

$ sudo systemctl restart httpd

You can now access your Subversion repository using the following URL:


Replace your_server_ip with the actual IP address of your CentOS 7 server.
