Subject Re: Regarding install and running svn1.9.2 for svnserve and http access in browser
Date Wed, 23 Dec 2015 11:26:11 GMT
Hi Ryan,

Sure will add the Team...

*One last question.*

I have already setup the SVN using compile options using apr, apr-util and
sqlite custom install and my svnserve is running.

So, for using http for READ only access to svn repository path, Installing
Apache with mod_dav_svn should provide access to svn repository.
(OR ) Do I need to install Subversion with Apache APR modules. I hope this
is not required since mod_dav_svn will talk to repository and provide read
access through http.

What I understood is, Configuring Apache http(2.2.14 and above preferably)
and having mod_dav_svn, mod_*_authz packages should server my repository
path for READ only access to SVN repository. For this I don't need
Subversion installed.

Please correct me If my understanding is correct. I am asking this question
since Apache will be installed first and Subversion will be installed
second with Apr installed in Apache.

Thank you.
