SVN Repository- An Overview
Subversion (SVN) is a versioning and revision control system. Developers can use Subversion to save current and historical versions of their site files which allows them to keep old versions of files and directories (usually source code) as well as a log of who, when, and why changes occurred. Since the old versions of the site files are stored in a repository, previous versions of those files can be restored at any time.
