Re: Can I view file details when using IE/firefox to browse a SVN repos through Apache server

I just checked with FireFox and it also doesn't display file sizes, so it's
not a IE issue.

If you really want to be able to browse the repository with a web browser,
you can look at viewvc which comes with Subversion <http://www.viewvc.org>.
It's pretty simple to setup, but it must run on the same system as your
Subversion repository and it runs as a python script, so it has to be a
cgi-bin script.

I prefer Sventon which is a bit more slick, but even better, it can run on a
system other than your Subversion repository server. <
http://www.sventon.org/>. Sventon runs as a Tomcat service, and not as a
cgi-bin script.

You may want to try Sventon first since you can set it up on your own
workstation and see how it works.
