Re: Regarding install and running svn1.9.2 for svnserve and http access in browser

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for the info.

I am running svnserve for client access through TortoiseSVN. This is for
users who wants to checkout and checkin the code.
There are some users who just want to browse the code in Internet Explorer.
The http in browser is required for users who browse code without checkout
using TortoiseSVN client. How to achieve this.

So, I have installed svn using configure.sh script i have used the serf
library path. But serf is not serving the http for svn repository. So my
doubt is whether the following option will provide http support when svn is
installed with below options.

I hope this explains what my requirement is.

  --with-apxs[=FILE] Build shared Apache modules. FILE is the optional
                          pathname to the Apache apxs tool; defaults to
                          Install Apache modules to Apache's configured
                          modules directory instead of LIBEXECDIR; if PATH
                          given, install to PATH.
