To check out a project initially, this is the command you probably want to use:

svn co svn+ssh:// PROJECT_NAME

or anonymously:


To create a new project in subversion, login to the subversion server ( and do:

cd /var/lib/svn
svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs PROJECT_NAME

This creates a project without any branch, tag or trunk directories. These are, however, the recommended way to deal with branching and tagging in subversion. It is therefore recommended you then check out the project a different way and do:

svn co svn+ssh://
svn mkdir trunk branches tags
svn commit -m 'set up control directories'

Back to Coders.
