SVN Newbie setting up web project repository

Hi there,

I'm quite a newbie to SVN. I've got it all set up and running and im
using Tortoise Svn which all seems to be working fine.

What i would like to know is hows should i set up my directories?? I
have about 7 different web projects (no files shared between them). My
current set up (with no version control) is one site per folder. e.g.

d:\wwwroot\site2\ etc

I have my webserver pointing to d:\wwwroot\ with directory
browsing so viewing any site is relatively easy.

Now that i want to use SVN how should this be set up? I was thinking
still having i repository per site e.g.


Then when i check out a site check it out to d:\wwwroot\. Or should i
really check out the site in the svn repository i.e.
d:\svn\site1\www\ (or something similar)? That way all the files are
in one folder?

I don't know if this makes any difference but i will also be checking
out the files now and then to a laptop for when im working on the

Hope this isnt too obvious. I did search the mailing lists but didnt
find anything to specific to my problem.

cheers, Andy
