Subject:   Apache 2 Required?
Date:   2004-08-11 08:26:59
From:   lolajl
Looking at the required modules for server side installation, it looks like Apache 2 is required. However, I have version 1.3 installed on my laptop, which is the default install. How can I safely switch over to Apache 2? I'd like to keep the system default there in case I need to revert back to 1.3.

    Or, ignore Apache and user the built-in SVN server, svnserve.

    It's easy to set up and use -- instrux are in the online book referenced above. There are some tradeoffs, but I didn't want to mess with getting Apache 1.3 and 2.0 working side-by-side at the moment, so svnserve was great for me.

    And, it's not a 2nd-class choice -- it's one of the fully-supported methods of talking to SVN.

    You can definitely run both apache versions side by side. By running Apache2 on a different port from the standard Apache 1.3 installation you should see no intererference at all. See page 1 notes on configuring an alternate port for Apache2.

      I've configured everything as per page 1 -- all seemed to go as it's supposed to. I started apache2, and got the message that the server has started. I made all the changes to the config file. But when I try and connect to localhost:8800 (as the server is local) I get: "could not connect to server (http://localhost:8800)".

      I'm not smart enough to debug this on my own... Will try a reboot but suspect it won't make much difference. If I've configured Apache2 to listen on 8800, what else is there, as long as it's running?
