Thank you, I have the chmod stuff sorted I found that ( blush - sometimes i'm daft ).
With the SVN i've gone through the Wiki stuff, i've PuTTY'd into my DH account for the first time - seems pretty straightforward linuxy type stuff so that was ok, and i've followed the wiki article - but i'm confused by the last step and am sure i'm doing it wrong.
The last step says to modify my /home/username/svn/projectname/post-commit to invoke the CGI script.
I goto my folder and inside it appears empty, I see no filed. I tried creating a file called 'post-commit' but to no avail thus far.
I tried adding my main account/PuTTY account to my list of SVN users but I still dont see any files.
I'm competent but not expert or experienced in this field so any help given is really appreciated, thank you.
