Been tinkering around with subversion all day on local VMWare virtual dev servers..trying to figure out best setup. We've got both IIS and LAMP boxes and a couple remote developers. We run some custom apps, as well as just about every major open source app out there with our own code scattered throughout all over the place in every single one My first question is, the repository isn't supposed to be created as the live www folder is it? How are the files in the live www root folder linked to the repository files? Next question...once it is setup and working, what's the easiest way to checkout and edit the files? Most of us use UltrEdit with all the sites setup in the built in ftp manager, which works really nice and we're all used to it. What would the best alternative to that be? Nano Edit through SSH client aint gonna fly . Linux documentation makes my add kick in. With Windows/IIS (which I'm much more experienced with) documentation, you get pictures!
