I'm logging into my site using SSH, navigating to a blank moodle folder, and attempting to implement the following command:
cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/moodle login
to do an initial download, from whicn I plan to use CVS to make incremental upgrades.
But I get the error "-bash: cvs: command not found." Does this mean that the Linux server (or bash) does not support CVS?
Thanks for your help --
PS -- Checked help online (e.g., https://ccvs.cvshome.org/fom//cache/9.html) to little avail.
it possibly means that you do not have the CVS client on your machine, or it is not on your path. What to do about it depends on what sort of system it is. If you can, ask the system administrator. If you *are* the system administrator then you may need to install the CVS packages. How you do this depends on the O/S that you are running, so I can't be much more specific. As a very last resort you can compile from source, but it shouldn't come to that!
Thanks; that's what I assumed. This is space my organization utilizes on a commercial server running RedHat Enterprise Linux; I'll request installation of a CVS client (is this an unproblematic request?).
It's surprising that it's not available, but who knows? The server admins should sort you out one way or another.
