Use LDAP for SVN user authentication

I have an SVN server, and I’d like to use our LDAP server for user authentication. Right now I’m specifying usernames and passwords per repository, which is working OK, but more people are deciding to use this server. And I really shouldn’t have access to their passwords. I’d like to use LDAP to authenticate users, […]

“Inconsistent line ending style” nightmare

I’m completely stuck with an SVN error when committing 2447 files at once. I’m using TortoiseSVN (latest version) on Windows 7 64bits.

Subversion resolve all conflicts quickly

Follow symlinks in SVN

I have a linux directory (and don’t need any windows checkout): /home/me/projects/project1 In this project, I need SVN (1.8.8) to follow a symlink “link1”: /home/me/projects/project1/link1/<some_directories_and_files> But SVN won’t let me do that, it just add link1 but not its content.

Perforce for a Subversion user?

I’ve just changed jobs. My previous employer uses Subversion, my new employer uses Perforce. Are there any resources out there that’ll help me, as a user, change my mental model from a Subversion one to a Perforce one? What are the analogs to common SVN commands? Which concepts are implemented differently? I’m not particularly interested […]

Visual Studio Publish Failed: “Unable to delete file … Access to the path … is denied.”

I’ve recently switched from a Windows XP machine to Windows 7. I use Subversion and TortoiseSVN. I cannot publish my .NET application in Visual Studio.
