Need help to configure version control

Dec 3, 2012 9:13 PM

I would like to configure version control of DreamWeaver CS 6.

I go to manage web site and enter version control.

Can you please advise what informaiton I have enter for server address and repository path when configure?

I got a message that Dreamweaver will disbable check in and check out when enable version control.

Can you please let me know that does DreamWeaver support both 2 functions at same time?

Is DreamWeaver only has version control client that I need purchase and install version controls server to make version control works?

Your information and help is great appreciated,

 

Regards,

 

Iccsi,

    Taken from DW Reference:

     

    Set up an SVN connection

    Before you use Subversion (SVN) as a version control system with Dreamweaver, you must set up a connection to an SVN server. You set up a

    connection to an SVN server in the Version Control category of the Site Definition dialog box.

    The SVN server is a repository of files from which you and other users can get and commit files. It is different from the remote server you typically

    use with Dreamweaver. When using SVN, the remote server remains the “live” server for your web pages, and the SVN server exists to hold the

    repository of files over which you want to maintain version control. The typical workflow is to get and commit files back and forth between the SVN

    server, and then publish them to your remote server from Dreamweaver. The remote server setup is completely separate from the SVN set up.

    You must have access to an SVN server and an SVN repository before you begin this set up. For more information about SVN, see the

    Subversion website at http://subversion.apache.org/.

    To set up the SVN connection, follow these steps:

    1. Choose Sites > Manage Sites, select the site you want to set up version control for, and click the Edit button.

    Note: If you haven’t already set up local and remote folders for a Dreamweaver site, you’ll at least need to set up a local site

    before proceeding. (The remote site is not required at this stage, but you will eventually need to set it up before publishing

    your files to the Web.) For more information, see Working with Dreamweaver sites.

    2. In the Site Setup dialog box, select the Version Control category.

    3. Select Subversion from the Access pop-up menu.

    4. Set access options as follows:

    Select a protocol from the Protocol pop-up menu. The available protocols are HTTP, HTTPS, SVN, and SVN+SSH.

    Note: Using the SVN+SSH protocol requires special configuration. For more information, see

    www.adobe.com/go/learn_dw_svn_ssh_en.

    Enter the address for the SVN server in the Server address text box (typically in the form of servername.domain.com).

    Enter the path to your repository on the SVN server in the Repository path text box (typically something like

    /svn/your_root_directory. It is up to the server administrator to name the root folder for the SVN repository.)

    (Optional) If you want to use a server port other than the default server port, select Non Default and enter the port number

    in the text box.

    Enter your SVN server user name and password.

    5. Click Test to test your connection, or click OK to close the dialog box. Then click Done to close the Manage Sites dialog box.

    Once the connection with the server established, your SVN repository is available for viewing in the Files panel. To view it, you can select

    Repository View from the View pop-up menu, or click the Repository Files button in the expanded Files panel.

    Yes, DW only includes support for SVN. You need to install a SVN server and repository manually from the link above before you can configure it in DW.
