In the following instructions, lines starting with "#" mean that they must be executed as root. A command line starting with "$" means that it must be executed as standard user.

# apt-get install subversion apache2 libapache2-svn

# mkdir /svn

# chown www-data:www-data /svn

Switch to webserver user, which is www-data by default on Ubuntu.

# su - www-data

$ svnadmin create /svn/my_repo

$ htpasswd -cmb /svn/passwd talend_admin secretpassword

# vi /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/dav_svn.conf 

<Location /my_repo>

DAV svn

SVNPath /svn/my_repo

AuthUserFile /svn/passwd

Require valid-user

AuthType basic

AuthName "Subversion"


# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

If you have Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) enabled on your system, follow the procedure described on this page.

Your SVN server is now installed and the repository is ready to store the Talend projects.

One thing left to do is to link Talend Administration Center to this newly created repository.

You will need the URL as well as the username and password of your newly created SVN when configuring Talend Administration Center (see Configuring the Web application access).

The URL syntax should read: http://host_or_ip_address/my_repo/project_name.

For example:


  • http://my_server/my_repo/another_project

Then give the user "talend_admin", password "secretpassword" as described in the passwd file.
