svn for multiple users


When I was using cvs, I had problems when one user commits and adds a new file, then only the user that did the commit could access the committed file. Does svn one have same problem, and how should it be set up, for multiple users? Do we all share an account for committing? Preferably everyone has their separate account.

Computer info:
svn will be set up on an Ubuntu machine. Currently access is using ssh. Any changes at our stage, is doable for now since its at the beginning.

Thank you

You should have no such problems if you set it up properly. First and foremost, read the SVN Book (free download, or purchase a paperback version from O'Reilly). At least keep a copy handy as it is very useful.

If you have a basic grasp of it, you can move on to a quick setup guide such as this one.

Good luck and have fun.



configuration, server, svn
