How To Install Websvn In CentOS 7

WebSVN offers a view onto your subversion repositories that’s been designed to reflect the Subversion methodology. You can view the log of any file or directory and see a list of all the files changed, added or deleted in any given revision. You can also view the differences between two versions of a file so as to see exactly what was changed in a particular revision.


WebSVN offers the following features:

  • Easy to use interface;
  • Customisable templating system;
  • Colourisation of file listings;
  • Blame view;
  • Log message searching;
  • RSS feed support.
