I am writing this blog because I found no proper tutorial for configuration of TortoiseSVN after it has been installed. Here is the step by step procedure with screen shots. Also with help of this you can also set up your repository somewhere in server.
First Install the latest version of tortoiseSVN from http://tortoisesvn.net/downloads. I am using version 1.6.10 on my Windows 7 (64 bi t) machine
Step 2: Create a repository somewhere . If you are creating it on the server, make sure the folder is mapped in on the system. Also create a folder within the folder and then map the outer folder to the system. This eases the task when import the repo
After creating repository, following folders should be visible
Step 3: If your folder is somewhere on the sever, better to map the server by following steps
Go to my computer and from tools Menu click to map the drive and map the folder where you just created the repository
Step4: Now Create a tmp folder and create a new folder within it.
In the New cretate the following 3 folders
Step 5: Copy the project files from your main project (this is usually the local copy of files which are on your system; which you want to be versioned to this trunk folder..
Step 6: Now right click in the trunk folder and click Import, locate the folder we created for Repository on the server (or to the location if you are not using server) and then click ok
Warning: When you hit OK it might produce the following warning that target folder is not empty , click yes, this will simply version your files. Just make sure you these are the same files which we copied in trunk.
