Well, in my situation, the production server is at a host. So I couldn't
directly checkout to it, because I have to ftp the files.So perhaps a
checkout to a local directory from the repos on the dev server and then FTP
to the host?
And the dev server would contain some repositories and also some virtual
hosts, right? Could I checkout from the repos on the server to the virtual
root on the server, from my pc on the network (with dreamweaver of VS)?
And for developpers that are outside my network, can they do that as well?
So they work on the files in the virtual root (with me) and update the svn
now and then. I'm thinking along the way of webdav or?
Many questions, because I want to understand the best way from others'
experience before I start setting it up.
