I must say I don't quite understand what you want. But I'll take a
guess: you either a) want developers to make changes in a shared working
copy on the server, or b) you want committed changes to "appear" on the
server in "real time".

a) is possible, but definitely not recommended practice.
b) is easy to do with Subversion, either by doing periodic updates on
the server (via a cron job), or by using SVN's post-commit hooks to do
the updates on demand.
