VisualSVN Server

The guys that already made VisualSVN, a plugin that integrates into Visual Studio and provides a way to manage your source code changes into Subversion, just realized VisualSVN Server.

VisualSVN Server is a package that contains everything you need to install, configure and manage Subversion server for your team on Windows platform. It includes Subversion, Apache and a management console.

VisualSVN Server is less than 6MB in size and can be downloaded and installed in a couple of minutes with just few clicks.

Creating and managing Subversion repositories has never been so easy.

Manage Subversion security policy within a familiar user interface.

And last, but not least - VisualSVN Server is completely free!

Not "completely free" guys.  This is the second blog I've seen propagate this misinformation.

There's a big 'ol "Buy" link on the front page.  How you missed it, I'll never know...

Awesome! VisualSVN is an amazingly good product and well worth the $49 (but it was $19 when I bought it... wtf). A free server administration piece just sweetens the deal. This will come in handy when I try to convince my current gig to dump TFS.

Looks like the "Buy" page only has the option to purchase VisualSVN, not VisualSVN Server.

This looks great, thanks for sharing.

Bob, you must have been looking at the VisualSVN VS plugin.  The VisualSVN server is indeed free.

Bob: You must read the post correctly!

VisualSVN Server is free!

VisualSVN, the visual studio plugin for subversion IS NOT free.

And it is exactly what I am saying in the post!

I wish VisualSVN Server would keep the same version numbers as SVN.

While leaving post, noticed side ClustrMaps, cool!  I've heard they have big flat screens in the lobbies of Google buildings that show where on the globe searches are happening and pop-ups of search terms.  Just registered for service.  Thanks for the great pointers.

How do you configure "Server name" to allow remote access to the repository?

lkempe said:

ddo: You do it using the connector string that describes how you want to connect to your svn server. Check out SVN documentation.

I found out the default created "Server name" or the URL displays after the installation completed may not function; if the environment is not setup properly because IP forwarding and/or DNS configuration.
