Subversion is a free/open source version control system (VCS). That is, Subversion manages files and directories, and the changes made to them, over time. This allows you to recover older versions of your data or examine the history of how your data changed. In this regard, many people think of a version control system as a sort of “time machine.”
ReadyNAS Platform: Intel
ReadyNAS Firmware: RAIDiator 4.2.15+
To prevent any unauthorized access to Subversion and the repositories manged by it, you can set different access levels from the add-on's management window. After installation the repositories are by default accessible by everyone. So do yourself a favor and set the access levels.
To make use of the Subversion add-on you need to create repositories. The add-on itself doesn't provide a function for doing that. So you can either use the WebSVN add-on that has such a function or you create the repositories manually on the command line using SSH access.
To manually create a repository you can use the following commands:
svnadmin create /opt/subversion/<name_of_repo> svn mkdir file://opt/subversion/<name_of_repo>/branches -m "Created branches" svn mkdir file://opt/subversion/<name_of_repo>/tags -m "Created tags" svn mkdir file://opt/subversion/<name_of_repo>/trunk -m "Created trunk" chown -R admin:admin /opt/subversion/*This will give you a layout as referenced in the SVN Book by Red Bean. Please note that the '/opt/subversion' directory is just a symlink to '/c/.subversion' so the repositories are actually stored on the data partition of your ReadyNAS.
