What is Subversion?

Subversion is a control system version free / open-source. 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 their changes. Because of this, many people think of a version control system as a sort of “time machine”.

Subversion can operate across networks, which allows it to be used by people on different computers. On one level, the ability for various people to modify and manage the same set of data from their respective locations fosters collaboration. Progress can occur more quickly without a single conduit through which all modifications must occur. And because the work is versioned, you need not fear that their work quality for not miss this one for changes via the data suffers an improper modification, just undo that change.

Hands on!

Install subversion in Ubuntu is very easy, simple, honey in theta, q easier than stealing candy from little child … Last!
[ad#ad-1] Just open up the terminal, run the following command:

 sudo aptitude install subversion subversion-tools subversion-helper-scripts 

Creating a project

To create a project, just to get into the desired folder (which will be the repository of the project), and execute the following command:

 sudo svnadmin create  project> 

Subsequently, we give permission to the user of our project:

 sudo chown-R :   project> 

Ready! SVN installed, and created a project.

In the next post I will write the main command svn.
