Install Java Runtime environment and SubGit binaries according to the Installation guide.
- Configure repository
Run this command on behalf of the same user you use to serve Git repository
Subgit configure example…
SVN_URL– SVN project URL.
GIT_REPO– a path to a new Git repository.
TRUNK– a path, relative to
SVN_URL, that leads to an SVN directory that plays the role of the main line of development.
Specify authors mapping
Configure authors mapping in default authors mapping file:
core.authorsoption so that it points to the global authors mapping file.
Find more details about authors mapping in the Authors mapping manual.
Specify a username and password that are used by SubGit to access the SCN repository. Edit passwd file:
By default, there's only subgit secret credential pair. Replace it with a username and its corresponding password.
There are several methods to configure authentication to access the SVN server, but we use a plain text password file here to simplify the guide. See more authentication methods in SVN Authentication if this method does not fit your needs.
- Perform SubGit installation.
Install SubGit into the repository by the command:
GIT_REPO– a path to the Git repository.Subgit install example…
When the command completes, you can clone your new Git repository and start to work with it:
WORK_TREE– a path to your working copy.Git clone example…
Emty working tree case
If Git warns you that you are cloning an empty repository and you don't see your files in the working tree, most probably automatic branches and tags mapping didn't work correctly. In this case, mapping has to be set manually, see details on mapping in Branches and tags mapping.
Try and buy.
Note: the trial period for SubGit mirror is 30 days, after that period you should buy a license key at https://subgit.com/pricing.
Once you receive an email with a license key, upload this license key to your server and run the following command:
GIT_REPO– a path to your newly created Git repository.Subgit register example…
