Installing Subversion


Recommended Posts

I've been trying to install subversion by following the instructions in the Uniform Server Wiki at


but I'm stuck right off the bat since I can't find any httpd directory in the current version of subversion I installed from



(as a side note: the link on the wiki page takes one to the subversion package for an Apache version, which I understand to be no longer used by Uniform server)


What am I missing??

The following assumes you installed US to C:\UniServer_4_3\UniServer

Note: Replace with your paths.


1) Download File: svn-win32-1.6.3.zip

Bottom of this page:



2) Inside folder udrive create two new folders svn_temp and svn




3) Copy the entire content of folder svn-win32-1.6.3\svn-win32-1.6.3

To folder C:\UniServer_4_3\UniServer\udrive\svn_temp

Folder svn_temp will now contain folders bin, iconv, licenses, share and file README.txt


4) Navigate to C:\UniServer_4_3\UniServer\udrive\svn_temp\bin

Copy files: mod_authz_svn.so and mod_dav_svn.so

To folder: C:\UniServer_4_3\UniServer\udrive\usr\local\apache2\modules


5) Navigate to C:\UniServer_4_3\UniServer\udrive\svn_temp\bin

Copy these files:












To: C:\UniServer_4_3\UniServer\udrive\usr\local\apache2\bin


6) Edit file: C:\UniServer_4_3\UniServer\udrive\usr\local\apache2\conf\httpd.conf


Confirm these modules are enabled as shown:


LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so - Already enabled

LoadModule dav_fs_module modules/mod_dav_fs.so


7) At the end of load modules section add these two lines:


LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so

LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so


8) At the end of httpd.conf, add the following block of code.


DAV svn

SVNListParentPath on

SVNParentPath /svn

AuthType Basic

AuthName "Subversion repositories"



9) Restart Servers


Access the SVN repository. Type http://localhost/svn


You should see: A "Collection of Repositories" page

Powered by Subversion version 1.6.3 (r38063).


That will get you started


All the best

Thank you very much - it was exactly what I needed and it did give me access to the repositories from the local machine.


Now I need to figure out how to make the repositories accessible from the rest of the LAN :-)


PS I was not able to start the server with UniController, though the batch files work as expected.

UniController complained about port 80 being in use, though it does seem to start MySql and allows me to stop it

Put UniServer on-line:

Edit file: C:\UniServer_4_3\UniServer\udrive\www\.htaccess


Comment out these three lines as shown

#Order Deny,Allow

#Deny from all

#Allow from


Now get your ip address, to find this open a command prompt: Type ipconfig

You will see something ike this:


IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . :


On another PC on your network use the ip address instead of localhost

e.g type the following ino a browser:


All the best

Ric :)
