SVN thru SSH will transfer your files in encrypted format over the network. If u using remote svn server then i’ll recommend u to use svn over ssh. By using SVN thru SSH, you can avoid others from reading your source code and this is a good practice for everyone.
To SVN thru SSH in Linux or Mac, follow the steps below:-
- Start your terminal
- Use the command below to checkout from the svn thru ssh:-
svn co svn+ssh://email@example.com//home/svn/reponame /your/dest/folder
* of course you need to change the above command variable to yours (eg. username, mysvnserver.com, repo directory and destination folder)
- Once checkout, whenever you commit changes, the svn will be thru ssh
