I am trying to re-organize the svn repositories of the company where I
work. Below I'll explain what I aiming for:
For each client I want to have a separated directory, and one svn
repository for each project inside this client's directory.
So let's say I have a client called 'wadus' and 2 projects for this
client named 'foo' and 'bar'.
mkdir -p /var/lib/svn/wadus
svnadmin create /var/lib/svn/wadus/foo
svnadmin create /var/lib/svn/wadus/bar
I also want that if you go browse the main page of the repository lets
say: http://svn.mycompany.com you can see a listing of all the clients
(dirs) and browse up to the repositories as well.
My third goal is to keep the configuration as much minimalistic as I
can. It'd be perfect if i don't have to write any configuration when I
have to add a new client to subversion. I haven't met this goal for
My first attempt is explained in the following configuration, this is
the main svn apache virtualhost:
CustomLog /var/log/apache2/svn.log combined
And inside /etc/apache2/svn-clients/ a file named 'wadus' after the
client with the same name with the following config:
AuthName "Subversion Repository"
Every client's directory will have a file like the one above.
The repositories both work in http and command line. But I can't get a
listing of all the directories when trying to browse
http://svn.mycompany.com ( I get an apache Not Found error, which
makes sense). I tried to add a document root in the main svn config
file but then I got the infamous 301 error (see
http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#http-301-error) when checking
So, how can I make my repository browsable from the list of
directories that contains the projects?
Also, having a flat directory hierarchy (so I can use SVNParentPath
and forget about everything) makes the repository harder to browse, so
I think it's not smart at all. Is there any way to have a 2 level
(clients/projects) hirerarchy with just one single apache config file?
Thanks for your time.
