In an effort to keep track of changes to the web sites on my server, I have started to use Subversion. On exisiting sites I have imported the site to a subversion repository, renamed the website folder (just in case) and then did a checkout of the site to a new folder with the old name.
This is working for the majority of sites I have (including a couple of Joomla! sites). However, when I do a checkout of a SilverStripe site, I am required to do a re-install by SilverStripe. As I am not sure if that will upset my site, I have been reluctant to do so, and have reverted to the backup copy in the meantime.
Any ideas about why I cant just do a check out and have everything working the way it was originally?

keep the index.php and install.php files out of the picture, and ensure your mysite/_config.php is at the point it has your correct mysql username/password.
or are you doing that already?

Found the problem.
Svn had not copied the .htaccess file into the repository. When I restored it everything came right, even with the index and install files present.
I have done a "svn add" and it has now put the .htaccess file into the repository.
