Remove Apache’s httpd default page:-

Stop Apache httpd from showing records in the “/var/www/html” directory:-

sed -i "s/Options Indexes FollowSymLinks/Options FollowSymLinks/" /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

 

Install SVN and the mod_dav_svn module:-

Configure SVN:-

vi /etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/10-subversion.conf

Setup SVN user accounts:-

htpasswd -cm /etc/svn/svn-auth user1

chown root:apache /etc/svn/svn-auth

chmod 640 /etc/svn/svn-auth

 

If you want to create more SVN user accounts, refer to the following commands:

sudo systemctl start httpd.service

sudo systemctl enable httpd.service

 

Open the HTTP service port:
