SVN Repository without server public accessible

with 2 comments

Suppose you want a SVN repository but you don’t have any public accessible server and also you don’t want to leave you pc all day running with port forwarding from you router and so on.

The simple solution is to install SVN repository on localhost and use Dropbox to synchronize SVN filesystem.

First of all you must to install SVN on your localhost. The guide located at can help you to do it.

The second step you must to do, is to install Dropbox, you can check my previous post on how to do it on Linux running without Gnome&Nautilus environment.

After Dropbox install, move the SVN filesystem, the location depend where you installed it, to the Dropbox folder.

Do the same steps on the second PC, and as result you will have local SVN repository synchronized other internet.

Good luck!

  1. Having local SVN repository is great. But if you need something just to jump to any point in time with your project/game/whatever, and want something to use for yourself , then GIT might be a better choice. It is easy to install and no need to run any service/server.
