RE: running svnserve on windows

Hi Yasir,

We use firedaemon to run svnserve as a service,
makes things easier for administration:


It's been running for the last umm...4-5 months
with not a single crash or error on our 32 repo's,
it's on a W2K server we use for development, it
also runs IIS (erk!), takes a fair lickin' and
keeps on tickin'. Amazing for a windows box!

Security can be achieved over SSH but you can
also use a password database for authentication.

I fell for svnserve in such a big way I wrote
a blurb about it in the TortoiseSVN manual :)

(some intro text lifted from svnbook, which you should also read)

Hope that helps

-=> C:>svcserve -d c:\svnrepo, the cmd window remains open, how
-=> do I run this in the background or as a service?
-=> I am running it as an admin on the Domain controller is
-=> there any security issue or best practice that I am missing?
-=> Thanks a lot,
