SVN browser site changed - thelusiv - 07-29-2006

Just thought I'd let everyone know we've switched from WebSVN on svn.vdrift.net to ViewVC to view the source in our repository. It has a few differences, one is that it's written in Python rather than PHP, it displays code with syntax colorization. There are a few other differences, just check out the site and tell me what you think.

I think ViewVC is better than the HTTP viewer, but I need to say that I like WebSVN more and I think it has better features with viewing diffs between revisions. (ViewVC was intended for use with CVS and they can only show diffs per file and not per revision)

Yeah I liked WebSVN too, but it had one big problem, it required mod_php4 to be installed, which we've been trying to get rid of on the server.

do you mean that it has to use PHP4 and you want upgrade to PHP5?
since the CMS is in PHP too (or do you want to replace it too?)
Or am I wrong with thinking what mod_php4 is?


- thelusiv - 07-31-2006

I was using the websvn package from apt. If you install it, it makes you uninstall libapache2-mod_php5 and install libapache2-mod_php4 (I think those are the names of the packages...)

ok, maybe that is just the fault of Ubuntu, probably php5 works well too
Websvn needs obviously php so since php4 was the only available version for a long time it had that dependency; apt installs it, but since mod_php4 and mod_php5 conflicts (they do the same so its logical) mod_php5 needs to be uninstalled.

looking to the packages.ubuntu.com learns me that you could try to uninstall mod_php5 and install php5. (as mod_php5/mod_php4 does not ave any other installed dependencies)

Yeah, I think it will honestly work on php5. But the deb is out of date, which means it is not as easy to install. I guess that's not so important. But it still bugs me, to run software that hasn't been updated since 2004... http://websvn.tigris.org/servlets/ProjectNewsList
