    I'm interested in this as well. There should be a way to set up access to the repos by a url like http://svn.mydomain.com/svn/myproject and setting up authorized users with a name and pwd. I think this would involve work to be done on the account outside of what we have access to. This is a guess. If anyone has any info on this, please respond.

    Thanks!

    I am also interested in having svn built into apache. Unfortunately without root access to the box we cant use the dav_svn module for apache. It would be awesome if bluehost would add support for this =]

    Default How to Set Up Subversion On Bluehost (Easy Way)

    Here is an easier solution for how to set up Subversion (SVN).

    And this one will work for whatever the latest version of Subversion is -- it will automatically find out what versions of the dependendencies (apr, apr-util, neon, etc) to download for you, and build them automatically as part of the Subversion build process (rather than you having to configure/build/install each package individually).

    You need Secure Shell (SSH) access enabled for your Bluehost account, in order to do this.

    1. Go to http://subversion.tigris.org/, and head to the "Source Releases" section. Here you will find what the latest version of Subversion is. At the time of this writing, it is 1.6.4, and the link to download the source code is http://subversion.tigris.org/downloa...-1.6.4.tar.bz2, and the link for all of the dependencies is http://subversion.tigris.org/downloa...-1.6.4.tar.bz2 (note that this is exactly the same URL as that of the sources, with 'deps' inserted between 'subversion' and the version number, 1.6.4).

    2. So with that in mind, log in to your bluehost account via SSH.

    3. Execute the following commands at the shell:

    Code:
    mkdir src
    cd src
    wget http://subversion.tigris.org/downloads/subversion-1.6.4.tar.bz2
    wget http://subversion.tigris.org/downloads/subversion-deps-1.6.4.tar.bz2
    tar -xvjpf  subversion-1.6.4.tar.bz2
    tar -xvjpf  subversion-deps-1.6.4.tar.bz2
    cd subversion-1.6.4
    ./configure --prefix=$HOME --without-berkeley-db --with-ssl LDFLAGS="-L/lib64"
    make
    make install
    Done ... now any other questions you have should be answered in Version Control With Subversion.

    SVN has been installed across all Bluehost servers: /bin/svn /usr/bin/svn /sbin/svn /usr/sbin/svn /usr/share/man/man1/svn.1.gz
