Installation from SVN
---------------------
The latest, bleeding edge Cherokee release can always be retrieved via
SVN. Note that this is the development release and could very well be
unstable. In general it is not recommended to run this release in
production environments.
Briefly, SVN is a system tool used to store and maintain files and a
history of their changes over time, and it is an invaluable development
tool. The Cherokee source code and related files are kept on a SVN
server at svn.cherokee-project.com.
To download the SVN repository you will need a special piece of
software called an SVN client.

Checking out the sources
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
To list the available modules, type:
----
svn list svn://svn.cherokee-project.com/
----
To check out the sources for the first time from the repository, use this command:
----
svn co svn://svn.cherokee-project.com/cherokee/trunk cherokee
----
[[update]]
Updating the sources
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
To update your sources every day, you use this command:
----
svn up cherokee
----
[[compile]]
Compiling and installing
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Once you have downloaded the latest SVN revision, you will need to
follow the installation instructions for your specific platform.
Note that some of the files present in the tarball are not present in
SVN. Most noticeably, the file `./configure` that will be needed for the
installation process.
To generate the missing files simply run this command:
----
./autogen.sh
----
As optional parameters, you can specify any option you want passed
to `./configure`. This way you can avoid issuing another command for
the configuration.
For instance, this line will configure your local copy with the four
specified parameters:
----
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
--localstatedir=/var --enable-trace
----
You would then be ready to proceed with the standard compilation
process for your platform:
