I recently had the need to connect to a Subversion repository that was hosted “in the cloud” and only accessible via a https:// address. I was on a FreeBSD server and every time I attempted to connect to the repository I would receive this error:
svn: Unrecognized URL scheme 'https://svn.web.server'
When I ran
svn --version I saw that there was nothing configured to handle the http(s) protocols. To resolve this I did the following:
make clean install
make config. From the configuration screen I enabled the Neon WebDAV/Delta-V repo access module and then ran
make clean installafter saving the configuration.
I was then able to successfully access SVN repositories hosted at http(s) addresses! I hope this is helpful to anyone in a similar situation.
