The CVS is not working !!!

Post by tupeu »

I saw the cvs is not working from 03 january 2008 when the last build was posted
Why no other build was posted since then?
What is happening?

Its a bit late to notice but who am I to complain :D I think CVS has been disabled because of some kinda server upgrade (or moving to a new server perhaps) or even making sure all statistics' code is up to date with PHP5 ;)

Just adding to the above, the code that creates the build might have been disabled. You can get the latest snapshot using CVS.

OK, so i`m here:
http://phpbb.cvs.sourceforge.net/phpbb

I don`t know how to use the cvs!

phpBB2-cvs is empty
phpBB2 has files in it with their age displyed
What is the idea, shoul I download every page that I need based on their age?
I know my forum files are from 13 december 2007 so if I find a newer file inside the cvs I should download it and replace my old file with it !? :D

Is there any program that downloads automaticaly the cvs files?

I highly discourage using CVS on a live board at this juncture.

And if you were talking about a test site, then I would suggest you don't just copy and replace but install again.

And you are looking in the wrong place, you need to use something like TortoiseCVS.

After installation, create a folder somewhere on the drive (preferably something like C:\phpBB CVS). Now open command prompt can type in:

Code: Select all

cd c:\phpbb cvs
and press the Enter key. You would change into the new created directory. Now type in the following two commends (pressing Enter key after each):

Code: Select all

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@phpbb.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/phpbb login
and

Code: Select all

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@phpbb.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/phpbb -z5 co phpBB2
Hopefully, after entering the second command CVS files should start downloading.

I'm kinda struggling with UI to download the snapshot. Hope this helps ;)
