I have a reseller hosting account that does not support SVN.. Does anyone else know of a decent checkout system, perhaps a installable software app that one can use on a hosted solution?

all the third generation source code tools have advantages over svn,
but require reading up on the distributed vesion control idea.

I personally use Mercurial (abbreviated as hg), big advantage is that
you can store repositories on https servers, using a neat cgi script.

What exactly do you need?

Hi Jive,

I had no ideas that hosting providers actually provide some sort of source code versioning systems.

Anyway, there is a versioning system that uses emails: www.relisoft.com (Code Co-Op).

Good luck

All of the distributed (third generation) system's can be used via e-mail

Honestly, it's a question of requirements:
-Windows or Linux (Git doesn't really work well under windows)
-how many users?
-what repository 'style'. ie. one central, linux kernel maintance, lone warrior...
-what services does your hosting have?

Actually, I constantly have different projects, but the requirements all seem the same:

My shared hosting server is Linux with cpanel,
usually about 2-5 users
The projects are always web projects using php, css, xhtml....

I would not be against some kind of installable php script that allows one to do this....if such a thing exists.

You should be able to run mercurial - all it need is python.
See http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/index.cgi/PublishingRepositories#head-9a24848e15eca631359c0b8441cfde04336e1f56 .

Then you can use standard apache authentification for your users,
but bear in mind - there are differences between subversion and mercurial (or subversion and git, or subversion and any distributed versioning system), but you'll find tutorials on that wiki.

so long,

Found a great one that uses php/mysql and is web based, called "intraversion" . It seems to suit my needs....:

The developer seems enthusiastic with his support as well, which is always a plus.
