Subversion core repositories migration
Starting Tuleap 10, a CLI tool is available to migrate a SVN core repository into SVN multi-repository plugin within the
same project. To do this migration, you have to run the following command as
root on your Tuleap server:
/usr/share/tuleap/src/utils/php-launcher.sh \ /usr/share/tuleap/plugins/svn/bin/migrate_to_plugin.php PROJECT_ID REPOSITORY_NAME USER_NAME
In this command:
PROJECT_IDis the project where we want to migrate a SVN core repository to the SVN multi-repository plugin.
REPOSITORY_NAMEis the name the SVN repository will have in the SVN multi-repository plugin.
USER_NAMEis the user used to do the migration.
A repository migrated will keep:
SVN content history
SVN accessfile history
Use Subversion 1.9 from WANdisco repository
Starting Subversion 1.8, the way paths are handled in the access file has changed. Sections of the access file that might have been previously ignored will now deny accesses to the repository. For more information, consult the Subversion 1.8 changelog: FS paths syntax in authz access rules.
You can use the following instructions to install Subversion 1.9:
Install WANdisco repository on your server
Upgrade Subversion with
yum upgrade subversion
Define max file size
Site administrators can enforce a max file size for the whole platform. This applies on all repositories of svn plugin in all projects. This limit will be enforced only with new commits (commits done after the limit is set) so you might well have 50GB files with a 128MB limit if the file was already there.
This limit is not applied if you import a subversion repository or if you migrate from core to plugin.
Whenever someone tries to modify a file bigger than the limit, the modification will be forbidden. However the file can
be removed (
svn rm) and re-added at a lower size. Please keep in mind that this won’t save space on your disk as the
large version of the file is still present in subversion history.
The default limit for new platforms (starting Tuleap 12.7) is 50MB. Before 12.7 there was no limit set but administrators can add one afterward.
This configuration can be done either in command line on the server with
# Limit is expressed in megabytes tuleap config-set plugin_svn_file_size_limit 50
There is also a GUI for site administrator in “SVN” section, “Max file size”.
