Subversion : Remote Access to Repositories2020/03/27

Access to Repositories from remote Hosts.
[1] Start [svnserve] service on a Host that Subversion repository exists.
[root@dlp ~]#
vi /etc/sysconfig/svnserve
# specify the top directory which SVN repositories exist

# default is like follows but possible to change for your requirements

# Specify the repository location in -r parameter:
OPTIONS="-r /var/svn"
[root@dlp ~]#
systemctl enable --now svnserve

[2] If Firewalld is running, allow SVN service. SVN uses [3690/TCP].
[root@dlp ~]#
firewall-cmd --add-service=svn --permanent

[root@dlp ~]#
firewall-cmd --reload

[3] If SELinux is enabled, change policy.
On this example, SVN top directory is [/var/svn] but if you set another Path except [/var], you need to modify follows for your requirements.
[root@dlp ~]#
vi svn-server.te
# create new

module svn-server 1.0;

require {
        type svnserve_t;
        type var_t;
        class file { getattr open read };
        class capability { chown dac_override fsetid };

#============= svnserve_t ==============
allow svnserve_t self:capability { chown dac_override fsetid };
allow svnserve_t var_t:file { getattr open read };

[root@dlp ~]#
checkmodule -m -M -o svn-server.mod svn-server.te

checkmodule: loading policy configuration from svn-server.te
checkmodule: policy configuration loaded
checkmodule: writing binary representation (version 19) to svn-server.mod
[root@dlp ~]#
semodule_package --outfile svn-server.pp --module svn-server.mod

[root@dlp ~]#
semodule -i svn-server.pp

[4] Access to existing Subversion repository from another remote Host.
For example, Access to existing [/var/svn/repos/project] repository.
By the way, default access permission is read only, so it's impossible to execute [commit] or others like changing operation. For chaging operation from remote Host, set acess permission like the link.
# specify relative path name for SVN URI

# on this example

# SVN Top directory : [/var/svn]

# SVN repository directory : [/var/svn/repos/project]

# relative path : [repos/project]

# SVN URI : [svn://dlp.srv.world/repos/project]

[redhat@node01 ~]$
svn list svn://dlp.srv.world/repos/project


[redhat@node01 ~]$
mkdir ./work

[redhat@node01 ~]$
svn checkout svn://dlp.srv.world/repos/project ./work

[5] It's also possible to access via SSH without running [svnserve] service on Subversion Host.
[redhat@node01 ~]$
svn ls svn+ssh://cent@dlp.srv.world/var/svn/repos/project

[redhat@node01 ~]$
svn co svn+ssh://cent@dlp.srv.world/var/svn/repos/project ./work2
