    Hey boys and girls.

    I just learned about SVN, and i see how its much better to use for updating my sites, and i so happends that i have installed it on my host. Im running wpmu with the subdomain feature turned on, so when i try to access mysite.com/svn, it gives me a 404 page.

    Im thinking this is bacause of the wildcard my host set up on the DNS.

    So far i figured out hot to connect to BP’s trunk and BP-dev’s trunk. I cant however connect to wpmu’s trunk, i get a error :(

    But I would like to upload the updates i got to my server, any suggestions ? Or even answers if you have any :)

    Thanx in advace.

  • o-O I have no idea what you mean by mysite.com/svn. Do you have terminal access (ssh) to your server? Otherwise even if you upload the ZIPs from any SVN to your server, it’s pretty much the same as using RC1 (albeit with more bug fixes;)).

    If you have shell access, then you (can) also have access to the SVN tools provided by the install by that Unix or Linux distribution, otherwise ask youre hosting provider for it. Then you can easily update through SVN with some simple commands ;)

    @DJPaulI dont have ssh i think, i dont really know, im kinda new to it all, The svn is a one-click-install on Dreamhost.com

    When i installed it, i could choose a path to install it in. I couldn’t choose a subdomain, so i went for a directory i.e. http://www.sportsblogger.com/svn/

    I have installed it, but when i try to acces that URL i get a 404 page.

    Other then that i have no clue what to do or how to do it :S

    Do i need to have shell access (ssh right ?) for svn to work ?

    Thanx for the replys guys

    SVN aka Subversion is a program that is installed on your host so that you can install programs that have their code repositories online easily. Any program (terminal on mac, putty on windows) can connect to your server through SSH. I don\’t know of anyway of installing SVN versions without SSH.

    For example, if you have an install like /var/www/html/ for an install, and wanted WPMU as the root domain in that folder, you would do something like the following:

    svn co http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress-mu/branches/2.7/ /var/www/html/

    then if you wanted to install buddypress from SVN into your WPMU install:

    svn co http://svn.buddypress.org/trunk/ /var/www/html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/

    That just installs everything in the /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/ folder like the latest SVN requires. It doesn\’t mean you are finished. You still have to read the README file about the specifics, especially copying the themes to the correct locations. Reason I say this is because at this point, it would be like having all files including the buddypress themes in /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/ which obviously isn’t complete. Imagine at this point you downloaded BP and just uploaded the entire thing to that location. It is a matter of copying around the themes to where they are supposed to be.

    I’m also having trouble with the svn, I do this:

    svn co http://svn.buddypress.org/trunk/ /home/jbailey/www/html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/

    Whoops, it cut me off… I meant to say:

    I don’t know why this keeps cutting my post in half, I’ll give it one more try:

    I’m also having trouble with the svn, I do this:

    svn co http://svn.buddypress.org/trunk/ /home/jbailey/www/html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/

    CONTINUED…

    …and everything seems to work:

    A /home/jbailey/www/html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-friends.php

    etc… etc… etc…

    …Checked out revision 1324.

    But when I check the plugins folder, Buddypress isn’t there. (I’m using Coda, by the way)

    First time using subversion, so I don’t really know what I’m doing.

    Test!!! Can’t start a new topic. bbpress say no user! No reply
