ViewVC Installation for SVN



ViewVC installation


SVN is just an installation of binaries on server machine which is usually accessed by apache (oh! there are other ways too but let me stay with apache here).
There are Several client side UI tools to access SVN like tortoise SVN, Silk SVN etc through which you can access history and other metadata of your repository.
Some time still there is need to have a strong browser based UI tool which can provide accessibility for traversing repo in a nice fashion where you can have look at history, commits, authors, logs etc..
