Pre-install git and svn clients

Every server I've worked with has need for both git and svn command line clients - always strikes me as odd that these have to be installed manually. And "yum install subversion" gets you a 3-yr-old version - I can't find a way to get a current svn onto a cPanel server without compiling from source.


Probably wouldn't make sense to pre-install svn server - that's rarely needed, while svn client is used by most customers (many want to maintain/update WordPress sites via svn, for example).

We have svn server installed. Every time we want to run easyapache we have to disable it in httpd.conf (via the include editor pages), then run easyapache, copy the svn files that easyapache just deleted back to where they were and then re-enable svn by editing the apache includes again. It should be simple!!

Definitely - I hate having to manually install SVN/GIT on Cpanel servers, would be a great thing to have it supported by default!

I would be happy with a graphical list of steps to "checkout" or "update" to my folders. I could then just click a button, and the process would load the server with my files. That would be good for rented server spaces.

Hi, Did the git that came with 11.36 work for your needs?

Sorry, didn't see your comment earlier. Unfortunately not, I am using only SVN on my current servers, would love to see it included along with git.


Thumbs up for including at least git though!

We need easier SVN client integration to update live websites on a cpanel server from a separate (remote) Subversion server either by post-hooks or cron etc. The process to set this up manually is tedious and often conflicts pop up when compiling from source.
