Using Subversion (SVN)

Use the following information to help you use Apache Subversion (SVN) to manage your Acquia Cloud code repository.


Acquia Cloud requires TLS v1.1 or greater for SSL to connect with an Acquia Cloud code repository. Although SVN version 1.8 or greater may include TLS v1.1 (allowing connectivity to your repository), earlier versions generally used TLS v1.0, which is not supported by Acquia Cloud.

You can determine which version of SVN that you are using with this command:

svn --version --quiet

For more information, see Apache Subversion Binary Packages on the Apache Subversion website.

Downloading an SVN client

In a browser, go to the Apache Subversion website to download SVN, view the installation instructions, and find links to GUI tools.
