What does CollabNet Subversion Server have to be installed on?

expert:
I am new to open source CollabNet Subversion Server and what to use it to manage project documents. I plan to download associated client AnkhSVN to my PC with Windows XP and IE 7. However I am not sure what and where I should install the main CollabNet Subversion Server on to form a configuration management system? For example do I have I have to first download and install Apache HTTP Server web server and then install CollabNet Subversion Server on it?

Hi, please take a look at this document: http://www.open.collab.net/nonav/downloads/subversion/readme/svn1.6_server_client_windows.html

As you can see, the installer for Windows includes Apache already and that is a requisite. You can install this on Windows XP or 2003.

If you don't need a server (for instance you just need to manage your own code) then just install Tortoise.

Hope that helps.

aisaudalite: I am confused about subversion vs Tortoise etc relative to a simple configuration management system to manage and baseline dot net projects and java code documents etc with check in and check out file features. Right now when we  are finished with development we put &pull project files using a common shared drive (OS =windows xp)  which gets messy. Now say we have 4 or 5 people in group, what is the most simplest system we can download (i.e. http://www.collab.net, subversion? and Tortoise?)  to setup a simple and quick CFM system .  Do we need  a server ? or just install Tortoise? (Tortoise a client?). What is the bare bones we need to download etc ? help
