       svnserve - Server for the 'svn' repository access method

       svnserve [options]

       svnserve  allows access to Subversion repositories using the svn network protocol.  It can
       both run as a standalone server process, or it can run out of inetd.  You  must	choose	a
       mode of operation when you start svnserve.  The following options are recognized:

       -d, --daemon
	    Causes  svnserve  to run in daemon mode.  svnserve backgrounds itself and accepts and
	    serves TCP/IP connections on the svn port (3690, by default).

	    Causes svnserve to listen on port when run in daemon mode.

	    Causes svnserve to listen on the interface specified by host, which may be	either	a
	    hostname or an IP address.

	    When  used	together  with -d, this option causes svnserve to stay in the foreground.
	    This option is mainly useful for debugging.

       -i, --inetd
	    Causes svnserve to use the stdin/stdout file descriptors, as  is  appropriate  for	a
	    daemon running out of inetd.

       -h, --help
	    Displays a usage summary and exits.

	    Print  svnserve's  version	and  the  repository  filesystem back-end(s) a particular
	    svnserve supports.

       -r root, --root=root
	    Sets the virtual root for repositories served by svnserve.	The pathname in URLs pro-
	    vided  by  the  client  will  be  interpreted  relative to this root, and will not be
	    allowed to escape this root.

       -R --read-only
	    Force all write operations through this svnserve instance to be forbidden, overriding
	    all other access policy configuration.  Do not use this option to set general reposi-
	    tory access policy - that is what  the  conf/svnserve.conf	repository  configuration
	    file is for.  This option should be used only to restrict access via a certain method
	    of invoking svnserve - for example, to allow write access via  SSH,  but  not  via	a
	    svnserve  daemon,  or  to  create  a restricted SSH key which is only capable of read

       -t, --tunnel
	    Causes svnserve to run in tunnel mode, which is just like the inetd mode of operation
	    (serve  one connection over stdin/stdout) except that the connection is considered to
	    be pre-authenticated with the username of the current uid.	This flag is selected  by
	    the client when running over a tunnel agent.

	    When  combined  with --tunnel, overrides the pre-authenticated username with the sup-
	    plied username.  This is useful in combination with  the  ssh  authorized_key  file's
	    "command"  directive  to allow a single system account to be used by multiple commit-
	    ters, each having a distinct ssh identity.

       -T, --threads
	    When running in daemon mode, causes svnserve to spawn a thread instead of  a  process
	    for each connection.  The svnserve process still backgrounds itself at startup time.

	    When  specified,  svnserve	reads  filename  once  at  program startup and caches the
	    svnserve configuration and any passwords and authorization	configuration  referenced
	    from  filename.   svnserve	will not read any per-repository conf/svnserve.conf files
	    when this option is used.  See the svnserve.conf(5) man page for details of the  file
	    format for this option.

	    When specified, svnserve will write its process ID to filename.

       -X, --listen-once
	    Causes  svnserve  to accept one connection on the svn port, serve it, and exit.  This
	    option is mainly useful for debugging.

       Unless the --config-file option was specified on the command line,  once  the  client  has
       selected   a   repository   by	transmitting   its  URL,  svnserve  reads  a  file  named
       conf/svnserve.conf in the repository directory to determine  repository-specific  settings
       such as what authentication database to use and what authorization policies to apply.  See
       the svnserve.conf(5) man page for details of that file format.
