svn+ssh

11 06 2009

How to avoid that svn+ssh always asks for the password:

1. create a ssh key: ssh-keygen (without a passphrase or it will be asked each time you do an update)

2. connect to the remote server via ssh

3. edit or create a file “.ssh/authorized_keys” and put the content of your local “.ssh/id_rsa.pub” file (if the “.ssh” folder does not exist, execute “ssh-keygen” in order to generate it. Then remove the generated key files: “id_rsa” and “id_rsa.pub” which are not required)

For security, it would be better to use a passphrase then you can use an ssh-agent to automatically login for you. Take a look near the end of this post to see how to set it up: http://penguinapple.blogspot.com/2010/11/installing-svn-over-ssh-on-debian-and.html.

Stay secure and happy svn!
