How to install svn on Linux server

Posted by Rishikesh Vispute Categories: Installation

Svn(subversion) is used to maintain current and historical versions of files such as source code, web pages, and documentation. Its goal is to be a mostly-compatible successor to the widely used Concurrent Versions System (CVS).

It is very easy to install subversion client on linux OS using yum. You can us following command to install subversion client.

root@rushi [~]# yum install subversion

while installing subversion if you are getting following error  then it seem sot be perl-URI package is not installed on your server so you will have to install first before installing subversion client.

Please follow the following steps to install perl-URI package

You’ll login via SSH as root and run this command:

root@rushi[~]# yum install subversion

and then you may get this error:

Error: Missing Dependency: perl(URI) >= 1.17 is needed by package subversion

Here’s what you do next (copy/paste):


root@server [~]# rpm -i perl-URI-1.35-3.noarch.rpm

root@server [~]# yum install subversion

Installed: subversion.x86_64 0:1.4.2-4.el5 subversion.i386 0:1.4.2-4.el5

Dependency Installed: neon.x86_64 0:0.25.5-10.el5 neon.i386 0:0.25.5-10.el5


That’s it subversion client is successfully installed on your server you can check it using following command.

root@server [~]#svn –version
