SVN Server

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I wasn't to sure where to put this, but I guessed this was the best section of the forum.

What is a good SVN server that I can rent to store my personal project data on? I had used my school's in the past, but now that I've graduated I need something of my own. Do you guys have any recommendations?

assembla.com has good free hosting, the best (specs wise, at least, I havent tried out any others to be able to compare service)

I'm looking for personal storage, but I would want something I have full access to. I may in the future let other people access the account, but I can always create a new account for that if I have to. Basically I was thinking of making a personal game or just having some small projects of my own. I am not making an open source project however.

I checked out Assembla, but I wonder, do I only get 1GB of storage for the cheaper option? That doesn't seem like a whole lot when I can get 2GB + for free from things like Drop Box (which isn't an SVN). I currently have about 5GB of data in my school repository. I wouldn't mind a smaller one if I just had code, but I also have art assets.

I use CollabNet ( http://www.open.collab.net/downloads/subversion/ ) which is based on Apache SubVersion. Its very easy to install, setup and use.

I host my own SVN server on a PC setup as a server at my home. Just install something like VisualSVN. You can get the free version which works like a charm. Check out the differences here: http://www.visualsvn.com/server/licensing/

Actually, this made me think of an idea. Maybe I could create an SVN server on a separate computer in my house and then have that computer backup online with something like Carbonite.

If you want to use it for youself only, you can easily use [url="http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/"]tortoise[/url], installed on your computer, and setup the repository on any available (internet) storage, no SVN server needed. When you want to protect your repository , use a encryption tool like [url="http://www.truecrypt.org/"]TrueCrypt[/url].
