I am fairly new to Subversion and was wondering how exactly to ignore all folders by a specific name. From what I have read, I think I need to use the
svn:ignore function, but I have no clue on how to actually do this. Some places mention a config file.. some say command prompt.
I have my subversion repo set up on a windows 2008 server. I tried to go to command prompt and type
svn:ignore name but that didnt work. The tutorial I used to set up my repo (with apache 2.2) had me create an etc folder in c:/. There I have subversion.conf, svn-acl and svn-auth-file.
My subversion.conf file includes this:
<Location /btp> DAV svn SVNPath C:/Files/Work/Repositories/btp AuthType Basic AuthName "By The Pixel Repo" AuthUserFile c:/etc/svn-auth-file Require valid-user AuthzSVNAccessFile c:/etc/svn-acl </Location>
The client I use for my development machines is tortoisesvn.
Im a bit of a noob so any help is appreciated it! Thanks.
In TortoiseSVN the way to do it is
- Right-click on working copy
- TortoiseSVN --> Properties
The above is for a particular folder that you have checked out. If you want to globally ignore something all the time for your Subversion installation go to
- TortoiseSVN Settings
- Global ignore pattern
