I work for a small building supply company with a custom online store which was developed by an outside consultant. He used to provide a development version of the site where we could make changes which were submitted via Subversion, and which would be reflected at the development site’s url.
Since he is no longer providing this service I’m trying to set up a similar configuration. I’ve set up a hosting account here with Dreamhost, and I can upload our sites code to it and get it working. I can also set up a Subversion repository, but I can’t get Dreamhost to serve the files in the repository as if they were just a normal website. When I visit the subversion repository in the browser it just shows me the content of the files, rather than running the php code or serving the html files as html.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to get things working the way I want them to?
