Subversion (SVN) Server Startup Script

February 12th, 2008 2 comments

To be able to start and stop my subversion server nicely I created the following script to startup and shutdown under debian.

#! /bin/sh
# /etc/init.d/svnserve: start and stop svnserve
 
# Exit immediately if a command exits with a nonzero exit status.
set -e
 
# svnserve exists and is executable
test -x /usr/bin/svnserve || exit 0
 
# Directory Where the Repository is located, created with svnadmin create
REPOS_DIR="/opt/svn"
 
# The pid-file
PIDFILE="/var/run/svnserve.pid"
 
case "$1" in
  start)
        echo -n "Starting Subversion (SVN) Server"
        start-stop-daemon --start --quiet \
                --exec /usr/bin/svnserve -- -dr $REPOS_DIR
        # Also tried the following line but it didn't work ok
        #       --make-pidfile --pidfile $PIDFILE
        PID=`pidof svnserve` || true
        echo $PID > $PIDFILE
        echo "."
        ;;
  stop)
        echo -n "Stopping Subversion (SVN) Server"
        start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --oknodo --pidfile $PIDFILE
        if [ -f $PIDFILE ]
        then
                rm $PIDFILE
        fi
        echo "."
        ;;
 
  *)
        echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/svnserve {start|stop}"
        exit 1
esac
 
exit 0

Place the script in /etc/init.d/svnserve and run the following command:

update-rc.d svnserve defaults
