What is SVN?

Subversion (abbreviated to SVN) is a source control system. It allows you to centrally store project files on a server, but with the following benefits:
  • It is optimized for working on a project with multiple people. Unlike a shared FTP account.
  • The history of your project files is maintained. If you make a mistake, you can always restore an earlier version.
