Sorry to hear that! I found the Red Bean book quite clear and helpful, starting with no version control background.

I haven't read Pragmatic Version Control but in the Red Bean book that's certainly not the case. See for example:

That should not be. What happens otherwise? What are the permissions of the svn command?

Set up a server:


Then just access the repository's URL. Depending on what server you choose, your URL might begin with http, https, svn or svn+ssh.

It depends on the protocol you use:

http: 80
https: 443
svn: 3690
svn+ssh: 22

For any of these you can change the port to something nonstandard if desired.
