Setting up Subversion on Dreamweaver

December 24, 2012

This tutorial shows you how to setup Subversion on Dreamweaver using Google Code. I’m using CS6, but it likely applies to earlier versions.

  1. Create an account on Google Code: http://code.google.com
  2. Create a new project: http://code.google.com/hosting/createProject
    Create Project
  3. Click “Source” and you should see something similar to:
    Login Info
    You’ll need the following information.
    Server address: lil-josh-demo.googlecode.com (replace with yours)
    Repository Path: /svn/trunk
    Username: JoshFromIU@gmail.com (replace with yours)
    Password: You can find your password by clicking googlecode.com password.
  4. Open your site in Dreamweaver. From the dropdown click Site -> Manage Sites and double click your site to open it.
  5. Click the Version Control tab from the left.
  6. Enter your Google code information from step 3. For example:
    Dreamweaver Settings
  7. Click Test and then Save if everything worked.
  8. I’d recommend watching this video to get a quick overview of the Dreamweaver’s Subversion features: http://tv.adobe.com/watch/learn-dreamweaver-cs5/working-with-subversion-and-dreamweaver/ (skip to 1:40)

I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to setup a subversion server, and found that Google Code was the easiest solution. If you have any feedback or questions feel free to leave a comment. Thank you and enjoy!
