Documentation is awful

I gave up on this -- installed my own. Its just not clear how to use this product. Do not use this if you've never worked with Bitnami's install before.


Good Subversion AMI

It was very easy to launch the AMI and make Subversion working in the Cloud.
I've only faced problems about the users authentication. Ineed, I've tried to configure out as explained in the "Bitnami Subversion User Guide" the repository's svnserve.conf file, but doesn't work. The solution was to configure the apache's stack/apache2/conf/httpd.conf file.
Let's note that the file svnserver.conf is working when Subversion is running with its dedicated server (svnserver), but not with apache web server.

Easy to install, difficult to configure

When selecting that AMI I was searching for an easy to use SVN software. The description looked good and the how-to on wiki as well. The installation and configuration at the Amazon Management Console went fine and I was happy running my first Subversion after a couple of minutes.
But than it become more difficult. Following the wiki description it was impossible to do the first import. Permissions to specific Subversion files like database or locking are set too low. After reading many articles and reseting the AMI multiple times I had to set the file permissions for the bitnami folder (including all repositories) to 777, what is not that secure, and it worked.
Maybe a more accurate wiki would be helpfull to that really usefull piece of software!

I'm happy with the instance. I'm not a linux hardcore fanatic but i was able to have my own server in no time. some documentation needs updating though but otherwise great job.

Easy to start, but requires additional changes for manual version upgrade. I think this product is good choice for most regular users.
