To the Developer Community:
I am a real novice when it comes to version control. I downloaded VisualSVN standard thinking it would be a easy to setup. Either I'm mistaken, I am over looking something, over complicating the setup... or something.
I've setup VisualSVN on a window 7 system: IIS2. I've following the instructions to activate and setup the repository but I'm unable to access the repository from PhpStorm.
I did setup VisualSVN on a windows 8.1 system and was able to upload and download from the repository using TortoiseSVN, but the next morning it quit working??? I would prefer to use the built in VCS in PhpStorm. BTW, the PhpStorm documentation of VCS setup is a bit out of date.
Has anyone successfully setup VisualSVN?
Is there a VCS that is foolproof that can be installed and setup quickly at no cost (other than my time)?
If you have a success with VCS you would like to share, I'm willing to listen.
