Subversion exists to be universally recognized and adopted as an open-source, centralized version control system characterized by its reliability as a safe haven for valuable data; the simplicity of its model and usage; and its ability to support the needs of a wide variety of users and projects, from individuals to large-scale enterprise operations.

Create and configure Subversion Repository (MX Studio application)
mkdir /var/www/svn
cd /var/www/svn/
svnadmin create mxstudio_repo
chown -R apache.apache mxstudio_repo/

chcon -R -t httpd_sys_content_t /var/www/svn/mxstudio_repo/

/etc/init.d/iptables restart

/etc/init.d/httpd restart

Test Subversion
enter the following URL http://ip-address/svn/mxstudio_repo

In My Case its :

Create additional links(directories) under Subversion Repository

[root@mx rajiv]# mkdir mx-studio
[root@mx rajiv]# cd mx-studio
[root@mx mx-studio]# mkdir python
[root@mx mx-studio]# mkdir bin
[root@mx mx-studio]# mkdir updates
[root@mx mx-studio]# mkdir doc
[root@mx mx-studio]# mkdir json
[root@mx mx-studio]# svn import -m ‘Initial import’ mx-studio/
Authentication realm: <; Subversion repositories
Password for ‘root’:
Authentication realm: <; Subversion repositories
Username: rajiv
Password for ‘rajiv’:
Adding mx-studio/python
Adding mx-studio/updates
Adding mx-studio/doc
Adding mx-studio/bin
Adding mx-studio/json

ATTENTION! Your password for authentication realm:

<; Subversion repositories

can only be stored to disk unencrypted! You are advised to configure
your system so that Subversion can store passwords encrypted, if
possible. See the documentation for details.

You can avoid future appearances of this warning by setting the value
of the ‘store-plaintext-passwords’ option to either ‘yes’ or ‘no’ in
Store password unencrypted (yes/no)? yes
