Can someone help me or point me to a decent tutorial on Subversion administration?
I have jailshell access to a shared hosting server with SVN installed. I have set up a repository under my user account, but have been unsuccessful in accessing it using a client.
We run Apache 1.3, so as far as I know I need to use svnserve. I've started it using the following command:
# svnserve -d --listen-host example.com -r /home/$USER/reposThis runs without producing any messages.
However, when attempting to connect (I'm using TortoiseSVN—if anyone can recommend any other clients, that would be appreciated too) I receive the following error:
Error * Can't connect to host 'example.com': A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.
I've read bits of Chapter 5 of the Version Control with Subversion book, but found it rather difficult to follow.
Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
Edit: Ah—I suppose I have to get port 3690 forwarded?
