For these commands to work, you will need to be logged in as the root user. To install SVN and its dependencies, we will use yum.

$ yum -y install subversion , mod_dav_svn

After this installs, you will be able to use subversion on your system.

The following commands will convert a ./my-test-directory/ containing files into a working copy of a newly-created repository:

$ mkdir $HOME/my-test-directory
$ mkdir -p $HOME/.svnrepos/
$ svnadmin create ~/.svnrepos/my-test-repos
$ svn mkdir -m "Create directory structure." file://$HOME/.svnrepos/my-test-repos/trunk file://
$HOME/.svnrepos/my-test-repos/branches file://$HOME/.svnrepos/my-test-repos/tags

Committed revision 1.

$ cd ~/my-test-directory
$ svn checkout file://$HOME/.svnrepos/my-test-repos/trunk ./

Checked out revision 1.

$ svn add --force ./
$ svn commit -m "Initial import"
$ svn up

At revision 1.

Congratulations, if you made it this far then you have successfully installed SVN and created your very first repository.
