Replace uberSVN Repository Browser with WebSVN working!
Since i was unable to get any help on these forms I just wanted to post that it is possible to replace the Repository Browser with WebSVN! DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for any issues that this causes on your system. I highly recommend that you take backups and test on a different server first! However with that being said i was able to do this with zero problems and no side effect on the system. This is what i did. From Linux Ubuntu 12.04+ x64 1.) install Subversion (apt-get install subversion) - don't worry this will not change your uberSVN subversion. ------ Note: I did the APT-GET first of the subversion. and then found an issue with compatibility of the webSVN and uberSVN subversion version. to fix this install subversion 1.8 for your distro. This is important to get this to work right. [url]http://www.wandisco.com/subversion/download#ubuntu_precise[/url] If you get asked about installing svn modules then you can say yes. 2.) install libapache2-svn (apt-get install libapache2) 3.) install webSVN (apt-get install webSVN) ------During the install it will prompt you to configure webSVN. On the first screen say 'yes', second screen leave all options checked *, third screen put in your top level repo location. (mine was /u01/uberSVN/repositories), fourth screen leave this one blank!, fifth 'ok'. If you mess this up the first time around don't worry you can reconfigure this again by running 'dpkg-reconfigure webSVN' After that you have do some minor tweaks. First lets change the port that it wants to run on. goto /etc/apache2/sites-available and edit file 'default' change the *:80 to *:81 so it should look like
Save the file
restart your apache service.
after that open your browser and check that you can get to webSVN
if you did everything right about you should now see webSVN.
Check and see if you can view your ubserSVN repositories!
if you can see them then great!
Now lets replace repository browser this with uberSVN.
First lets lock down webSVN a little bit and configure some settings.
make sure the following lines are uncommented.
$config->useFlatView(); //This is optional. I just liked the way it displayed better in uberSVN
$config->setShowRepositorySelectionForm(false); //This is important as this will lock down websvn from users looking at other Repos.
$zipped = '.dll'; //optional
Next lets replace the old REPO Browser with webSVN
go to your install directory for ubersvn
Edit line. with the
Hi there, Thanks for this, I'm sure it will be very useful. We do actually have a guide for updating the included repo browser to the latest version of sventon, you can find this [URL="http://docs.ubersvn.com/v1.0/admin.html#T13"]here[/URL].
