    What are you trying to do exactly?

    The simplest form is to initialize a new repo like this and then use it locally:
    Code:
    svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs /path_to_repo 
    svn co file:///path_to_repo
    <start working>

    The lines above are already enough if you use svn alone.

    After the checkout, you can start to create dirs and files,
    then add them (with svn add) and when you are done, commit them to the repo (svn commit -m "my comment" )


    For multiple people,
    1) there are some minor permission issues to solve
    2) and the way of remote access needs to be clarified.

    My team and I like to use svn over ssh, but there are other ways.

    Question

    Just one more question should I use an online service like bitbucket or should I stick with command line?

    Afaik, bitbucket supports git and mercurial, but not subversion.

    Use bitbucket or not...
    Your decision.

    It depends on your usecase/requirements of which you wrote nothing in this thread.

    For learning purposes, it might be good to start easy with a local repo and nothing more.

    Ok thank you! I think I will stick with command line.

    If you want to learn Subversion, go to the source
