Hi,

I've got SilverStripe v2.3.1 installed on my local webserver. Now I need v2.3.2 for the translation module. So I installed SVN.

I found the line "svn co http://svn.silverstripe.com/open/phpinstaller/trunk/ SilverStripeSite" and don't know where to put that line. I also read the recommended chapter, but I'm still a f*** noob :-)

Can anybody help me? Thanks in advance!

Cheers, Mario

i suppose you meant you need 2.3.2, not 2.3.1, right?

anyway, in case you're on windows, there's a nice svn client called 'tortoise svn'.
download it from http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/
it's an extension to windows explorer, once installed, just right-click in your desired folder, select 'checkout', and type in the address of the silverstripe svn repository. just give it a try!

Yes, that's exactly what I tried... But it doesn't work :-(

Either I get an error about a wrong URL -> "svn co http://svn.silverstripe.com/open/phpinstaller/trunk/ SilverStripeSite" or I have to log in.

Do you know the URL, I have to type in or a link, where I can get it. Tried the search, but couldn't figure it out by myself :-(

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Mario

That command is if you are using a command line to checkout the svn copy. But because you have downloaded a program to do it for you then you don't need to use the "svn co" commands, just the url which is http://svn.silverstripe.com/open/phpinstaller/trunk/

that's it, missed the svn command in the url...
once you got it running now, just a note if you're new to svn: you don't need to do the checkout every once again for new releases, just right-click and select 'update', and tortoise will show you which files have changed. love this svn stuff
