PHPkitchen’s CVS Tutorial

Posted on 20 May 2002 by Demian Turner

This article will show you how to set up a CVS client on a Windows machine that communicates with a CVS server on a Linux box. The tutorial was inspired by the plethora of misleading, unclear and incomplete CVS-related information on the web. Also, considering you need to install 4 apps to achieve the above objective the subject is necessarily complex. Let me know what you think.

    Just a heads up…

    If you try to run CVSweb:

    For example: http://localhost/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi

    and receive an error:
    Error: Failed to spawn GNU rlog on

    It\’s possible that you do not have rlog installed.

    rlog is included in the Revision Control System (RCS)
    file version management tools package,
    and if you install the RPM, you should be good to go!
