Hello! I'd like to ask you if you know any good resources on setting up an SVN server. What does a mortal-programmer need to do so? Anyway, if you think that using an existing server is a better solution, I'd be thankful for some links on cheap SVN hosting (for non open source project). Thanks in advance!

clapton: The best advice I can give is to install Apache2, and use mod_dav and dav_svn for repository access. Using the svnserve service is absolutely horrible.

Pity to hear that. I haven't had any problems with it, personally.

I have also found no problems with svnserve. Allows for all the basic needs we require ( authentication with user/password). The bonus you get with the apache2 stuff is a more secure server and web browsing so it depends on your needs. But since we all have fancy gui's we don't need the web browsing.

To start the server:

./bin/svnserve -d -r /home/your/path/to/subversion/repos/created/

It doesn't look complicated ... :P

Actually, we don't have any sophisticated requirements. I am working in a rather small team so a basic SVN would be just great.

Thanks for your help! :)

If you have a host which offers ssh access, you don't need to run svn as a daemon at all. You can use svn over an ssh tunnel, and everything works similarly to using svn on a local filesystem. Check the book for more details on this setup. I find it quite nice, myself.

I would suggest installing TortoiseSVN for repository access in a sane manner, assuming you're using Windows. Then finding SVNservice, which will run the svnserve.exe as a service.
