Thank you all, Chris Bob, Andrew, Ben.

Bob, the Server I am taking about here is our development, not
production server so it will be fine.

Chris, Andrew, and Ben thank you for given me 3 solutions to explore.

Many ASF websites including Subversion's are stored in SVN and
updated using this technique.

There is a very basic install instructions here:
