This assume you have already installed Subversion.

It is very common to interact with Subversion over HTTP. To do this, use apt-get or yum to install HTTPD web server and the Subversion module.

apt-get install httpd mod_dav_svn
yum install httpd mod_dav_svn

 

Edit the /etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/10-subversion.conf file, and add the following markup.

Alias /svn /var/www/svn
<Location /svn>
   DAV svn
   SVNParentPath /var/www/svn/
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "Subversion repositories"
   AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-users
   Require valid-user
</Location>

 

Since /var/www/svn was set as the Subversion parent directory, create the /var/www/svn directory.

mkdir /var/www/svn

 

If firewalld is enabled, issue the following commands to allow HTTP and HTTPS in the firewall.

firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=http
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=https
firewall-cmd --reload

 

Start and enable the HTTPD web server.

systemctl enable httpd
systemctl restart httpd

 

You can now go to http://example.com/svn/repo and you will be prompted to provide a username and password. Since we've not yet setup any users that have access to the respository, you will get Unauthorized. You will need to create a username and password that can be used to authenticate into the Subversion repository.
