Shared webhost with CPANEL question..

I'm trying to install subversion into my shared webhosting and I've read some articles that i got from google. A lot of them has the ff code (code attached) to install subversion but I don't know where to type those. Is it in SSH?

If not what do I need to install subversion and setup trac and a repository properly? Can you tell me in an easy to understand way?
As root:

cd /usr/local/src/subversion

wget http://subversion.tigris.org/downloa...-1.5.0.tar.bz2

tar -xvjf subversion-deps-1.5.0.tar.bz2

cd subversion-1.5.0

pwd
/usr/local/src/subversion/subversion-1.5.0/

make clean

./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs --with-apr=/usr/local/apache/bin/apr-1-config --with-apr-util=/home/cpeasyapache/src/httpd-2.2.11/srclib/apr-util --with-ssl

make

make install

anyone here could tell me where to use this kind of command on a normal shared webhosting account with Cpanel 10?

Demo of Cpanel 10 - http://demo.cpanel.net:2082/login/?user=xdemo&pass=xdemo

where would i input the following codes?

If i can't do this in a shared webhost account, what do I need?
cd /usr/local/src/subversion

wget http://subversion.tigris.org/downloa...-1.5.0.tar.bz2

tar -xvjf subversion-deps-1.5.0.tar.bz2

cd subversion-1.5.0

pwd
/usr/local/src/subversion/subversion-1.5.0/

make clean

As I already pointed out in your other thread, you input these commands in a text terminal via SSH connection.
An ordinary CPanel has a link to "SSH/Secure Access", your panel demo is missing this button. But the link only provides a java based SSH client; you could have the same functionality using any other SSH client, like, on Windows systems, PuttY: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

Once connected, try the commands and see what results you get. If you receive error messages, find out what operating system is running on that server, this is information that may be required to know for helpers, and that may also make installation easier.
To get the system info, type:
cat /proc/version
inside the text terminal, and post the output here.

As you've said this is linux administrating, and I don't have that much experience with linux just the basic yum install etc, i was using fedora before for a couple of months but didn't study much about it.

Is there an online article / source of the linux command that I might need for this task? just like:
cat /proc/version

Also what's the best way to practice / study linux administrating?

Thanks for helping!

"cat /pro/version" or "uname -a" are just a way to find some info about the system you are connected to remotely. Usually, these commands need not be used because an administrator knows very well what system he is administering since he rented or built it himself.

There are lots of books and online resources that help you learn Linux administration; but we need to know what system you are dealing with because the families of distros do differ somewhat. For instance: if the server you are presently trying to install SVN on is a Red Hat or CentOS server, then your experience with Fedora will help you a lot. If it's a Debian, SuSE or Ubuntu server, however, then the first thing you will have to learn is that "yum install" does not work on them.

The best practice by far is to run a test server yourself.
Since renting one costs money, I suggest to either reactivate an old PC you no longer use for installing a Linux server system (the Linux hardware requirements are noticeably lower than the Windows ones, and a server does not need a graphical interface which redices harware needs even more), or to simply install a Linux system inside a virtual machine on Windows (via Virtualbox or VMWare), and to configure it using mainly the command line terminal.
