Doubly so when you can't. As unpleasant as it is to be trapped by past mistakes, you can't make any progress by being afraid of your own shadow during design.
CVS was open source software itself, and its nonrestrictive modus operandi and support for networked operation allowed dozens of geographically dispersed programmers to share their work. It fit the collaborative nature of the open source world very well.
CVS and its semi-chaotic development model have since become cornerstones of open source culture. But CVS was not without its flaws, and simply fixing those flaws promised to be an enormous effort.
While the result wasn't—and isn't—the next great evolution in version control design, Subversion is very powerful, very usable, and very flexible.
This book is written to document the 1. We have made every attempt to be thorough in our coverage. However, Subversion has a thriving and energetic development community, so already a number of features and improvements are planned for future versions that may change some of the commands and specific notes in this book.
That is, Subversion manages files and directories, and the changes made to them, over time. This allows you to recover older versions of your data or examine the history of how your data changed.
At some level, the ability for various people to modify and manage the same set of data from their respective locations fosters collaboration. Progress can occur more quickly without a single conduit through which all modifications must occur.
And because the work is versioned, you need not fear that quality is the trade-off for losing that conduit—if some incorrect change is made to the data, just undo that change. Some version control systems are also software configuration management SCM systems.
These systems are specifically tailored to manage trees of source code and have many features that are specific to software development—such as natively understanding programming languages, or supplying tools for building software.
Subversion, however, is not one of these systems. It is a general system that can be used to manage any collection of files. For you, those files might be source code—for others, anything from grocery shopping lists to digital video mixdowns and beyond.
Is Subversion the Right Tool?
If you're a user or system administrator pondering the use of Subversion, the first question you should ask yourself is: If you need to archive old versions of files and directories, possibly resurrect them, or examine logs of how they've changed over time, then Subversion is exactly the right tool for you.
If you need to collaborate with people on documents usually over a network and keep track of who made which changes, then Subversion is also appropriate. This is why Subversion is so often used in software development environments—working on a development team is an inherently social activity, and Subversion makes it easy to collaborate with other programmers.
Of course, there's a cost to using Subversion as well: You'll need to manage a data repository to store the information and all its history, and be diligent about backing it up. When working with the data on a daily basis, you won't be able to copy, move, rename, or delete files the way you usually do.
Instead, you'll have to do all of those things through Subversion. Assuming you're fine with the extra workflow, you should still make sure you're not using Subversion to solve a problem that other tools solve better.
For example, because Subversion replicates data to all the collaborators involved, a common misuse is to treat it as a generic distribution system. People will sometimes use Subversion to distribute huge collections of photos, digital music, or software packages.
The problem is that this sort of data usually isn't changing at all.6 | Page Overview This document, CIS Apache Benchmark, provides prescriptive guidance for establishing a secure configuration posture for Apache Web Server versions running on Linux.
The following examples configure WebDAV authoring rules so that WebDAV clients can publish files that are not listed in the IIS MIME map, and add a single authoring rule that grants Read, Write, and Source access to the administrators group. I run a custom linux distro (built with yocto). I installed apache2 (+tomcat) and enabled mod_dav mod_dav_fs.
The Problem: I can successfully connect with webdav client, and download files. But every write-access operation that I . WebDAV Configuration on Apache (mod_dav) This article details only the configuration of the mod_dav Apache module.
We do not explain how to build the mod_dav module. If you use Apache 2, this module is already included. The need for read/write access means that the owner and group of the files will be that of the web server. For discussion. Also, if I just put "Require all granted" (without Limit) in front of the LimitExcept clause, write access works fine (for all users, not just the user "webdav").
