Creating a Subversion Repository

RSS

Overview

Given a folder structure on your local machine that contains source code files, this article walks through how to place them under Subversion source code control using the TortoiseSVN client.

Walk-Through

  • Right click the root folder, and in the context menu navigate to TortoiseSVN > Import. Note that the folder you right-click on will NOT be imported into the SVN repository — only its contents.

  • In the Import dialog, specify the URL of the trunk of the SVN repository

  • Right-click on the same folder as above and select SVN Checkout... from the context menu.

Image

  • In the Checkout dialog, for the URL of Repository specify the trunk, and for the Checkout Directory specify the same folder you right-clicked.

Image

  • When notified that the target folder is not empty, and asked if you want to checkout/export into that folder, response Yes.

Image

  • Set every bin and obj folder to be ignored via the TortoiseSVN > Delete and add to ignore list context menu.

NOTE: This step is possible only after your system recognizes each folder as being under SVN control, as evidenced by the green-and-white checkmark on the folder icon.
