Notes on installing cygwin subversion as a service on Windows 2003

From: Craig H. Anderson <craig_at_coot.net>

Installed cygwin including cygrunsrv from Admin group
and Subversion from Devel group

Create a repository
svnadmin create D:\\SvnRepo

Make sure the local System group has full control of
The folders and files in D:\SvnRepo.
I installed the service to run as the local System account (the default).

Use cygrunsrv to install svnserve.exe as a service
I ran this from a cygwin shell window
cygrunsrv \
  --install SvnServe \
  --chdir D:\\SvnRepo \
  --path C:\\cygwin\\lib\\subversion\\bin\\svnserve.exe \
  --args "--foreground --daemon --root=/cygdrive/d/SvnRepo" \
  --desc "Subversion for D:\\SvnRepo" \

Run the Services app and manually start SvnServe the first time.
It should be set to autostart in the future.

 From another workstation I ran this to see that the service
was running.

svn list svn://ServerName/
