Re: Creating Repository on FTP space.

If you manage to set up a svn server locally on each team members machine,
that manages to talk to an ftp server in some way (mapped drive perhaps),
then this will have heaps of problems. There is no way svn will be able to
lock the files properly using ftp and this is required for svn to work
correctly in the long term.

You need to set up 1 server *only* and each team member will have to access
that. If you can't do that, you need to find some other way to do what you
want to do or I will guarantee you that you're back on this mailing list in
short time to ask how to fix a corrupted repository.
