Hello list,

i am a newbie from this list, and sorry at all if my question is a bit stupid but.. If possible, i have the necessity to link the folder of my project to the locatione where cvs works. In brief my production site has a set of various files (html, php and so) and this folder is stored at different location respect my cvs folder (secutity) where regularly i /update/commit ecc.

I would like to do a symbolic link between my site folder, and the cvs repository folder, to permit to update real time any my work of the site. Is it possible to do this?? Or exist a difefrent method to replace my suggestion??

Before I attempt to answer your question, a small digression: the repository is forbidden territory. You only go in there when absolutely necessary, and when you know what you are doing.

Let me re-phrase your question to see if I understand you correctly. Basically, you want to have your production area always, and automatically, contain the latest version that is checked in - is that right?

If I'm right, then it sounds to me like you want this:

Also, linking directly to the repository won't help - the files in the repository are not usable by your web server.

If I'm wrong, then please try to explain it again to us ;=)

Hello Jim,

may thanks for your response and sorry for my terrible uk..:( Well, my repository is placed under a particolary path /usr/local/cvs_repository/project, and this path is different respect then i use to browser it. In fact this project is a small site which is still on line under /Library/WebServer/Documents/project. Is it possible now make a real correspondence between Repository files and official web server path/files, to keep always update the repository and last version of web site??

I hope now to be a lot bit clear ..
