Subversion Conversion, concluded

Woo! More than a month without posting.

Now that that's out of the way, let's get down to business.

Previously, I covered Subversion and Apache. While this was working great, what I really wanted in the end was to get https (http + SSL) working as a transport for the repository, so that remote developers wouldn't have to connect over VPN to access it.

Well, I failed. I looked and looked, and there's a lot of great tutorials out there, but none seem to work. It may be an issue with our setup (we are getting "This method not supported by your operating system" or somesuch, I'll check it tomorrow at work). We're using Windows Server 2003 R2, which isn't much different from 2003 Original (at least, not that I'm aware of) and I think I'll have to break down and compile the httpd from source, with as well. Not something I'm looking forward to.

But, it's working great otherwise. A huge project takes no time at all to Update/Commit, or pull down for new developers. Everyone using it agrees - it's definitely helping us get our work done faster.

Speaking of new developers - we're hiring. Be sure to drop us a line - and tell 'em Nic sent ya.
