Setting up VisualSVN server - how to integrate to existing Apache

Bo Berglund
I started to install an SVN server on my Windows7 PC using VisualSVN.
But I did not get an option to install using svnserve, so I think it
will try to install Apache on my PC.
But I already run Apache on it (2.2.22 and I don't want the SVN test
server to overwrite the existing Apache...
How can I install SVN server on Windows 7 without using Apache or let
VisualSVN integrate itself to the existing Apache?

Don't miss the Getting Started guide that should walk you through the
installation and initial configuration steps:

VisualSVN Server does not support `svnserve`.

VisualSVN Server can be installed side-by-side with Apache HTTP Server
on the same server computer. There should be no issues. Just make sure
that you select an available server port in the installation wizard.
Note that you do not need to configure manually configure or setup the
Apache that comes with VisualSVN Server.

Thanks, I had not seen this useful page.

On the SVN pages I saw mention that svnserve would be a faster way to
access the svn server, but at the same time not as versatile as via
Apache.

So my existing Apache 2.2.22 installation will remain as-is and the
one that comes with VisualSVN will be another service working on
another port?

Does this mean that there are GUI tools for andministering such things
as path dependent permissions and user accounts?

I need to import a lot of projects, which were managed by CVSNT in
separate repositories (for user permission reasons). It looks likely I
will put them all into a single SVN repository as top-level projects,
or else in projects located in subdirectories named as the old
repositories used (i.e one level down).
What is your advice regarding the procedure to get the CVSNT projects
into VisualSVN?

Yes.

Yes.

Note that in case you use Windows authentication with VisualSVN Server
the accounts are controlled your Active Directory and should be
managed by Active Directory tools, too.

As far as I know it is possible to migrate CVSNT repositories to
Subversion, but I am not aware about the suggested or recommended
approach. VisualSVN Server users successfully migrate from CVSNT to
VisualSVN Server.

Now back at home where I have a 180 day evaluation Windows Server
2016, on which there is no Apache running. So I tried to install
VisualSVN on this server instead.
But when I got to the "Inital Server Configuration" page I got an
error message when I hit Next saying that port 443 is occupied by
another service.
I believe that the culprit is the IIS server that is part of Windows
Server 2016, but I cannot confirm this nor can I prove it because
"netstat -abp tcp" does not show the owner of the port.
If I use the dropdown for "Server Port" the only alternative seems to
be 8443...

What will happen if I select this port instead?
Will I then have a non-standard SVN installation?
