Last week I installed Subversion in my systems and found "Mere-Moments Guide to installing a Subversion server on Windows" very helpful indeed and which minimize my time from googling on for more information's about installation. I found another blog entry for subversion installation with screen-shots about each step during installation. I am sharing both the links here for your reference on installing Subversion and I'm sure it will save your time.

During my installation I got some issues one after another they are mostly because of the spaces in svnserve.conf and in passwd files of svn_repos\conf folder. I am sharing this information because it will be useful during your installation process.

Error Message (This error occurred while starting the server manually and creating a project):

svn: C:\Documents and Settings\Subversion Repository\conf\svnserve.conf:12: Option expected
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn: 'svn-commit.3.tmp'

The issue is because in my svnserve.conf there where some leading space character I left while uncommenting my svnserve.conf file.

Cause for error: [general]
