Tell svn client to use a proxy-serverΒΆ

If you have or your server has to use a proxy server to access the internet you may have problems with your svn client although you aready set your http_proxy environment variable(s).

The solution to tell svn to use a proxy server is editing the ~/.subversion/servers file in your home directory and add the following lines or uncomment them, if they are already written into it:

[global]
# http-proxy-exceptions = *.exception.com, www.internal-site.org
http-proxy-host = my.proxy.server
http-proxy-port = 8080
# http-proxy-username = defaultusername
# http-proxy-password = defaultpassword
# http-compression = no
# http-auth-types = basic;digest;negotiate
# No http-timeout, so just use the builtin default.
# No neon-debug-mask, so neon debugging is disabled.
# ssl-authority-files = /path/to/CAcert.pem;/path/to/CAcert2.pem
