The following short instructions apply to setting up SVN on a root server or anything equivalent. In the actual case, I used a Host Europe Virtual Server Linux 3.0 package.
- Get the SVN documentation from here. All references in this list refer to the English PDF version of it. You will only need it for reference.
- For the rest, see these excellent instructions.
- Note: When you initially share your project in Eclipse, add files and directories to “svn:ignore” using the corresponding menu item in the “Synchronize” view before the first commit. If you just leave out these files in the first commit and add them to svn:ignore later, a conflict at these files’ parent directory occurs.
