We recently moved our Moodle install from Windows to Linux. Up until that time, we had been using TortoiseCVS to do our updates and it had been working fine. Now that we are on Linux, we simply want to continue to use CVS to stay current with the latest stable code -- sort of like using Windows Update to get the latest patches. Currently, we are not making changes to the code and then posting those modifications. We purely want to use CVS to download the latest stable release.
Is there someone that can help me with the initial steps of using CVS as a client to keep out local copy up-to-date using the command line client?
-----Original post, but I think I was headed down the road of using CVS as a developer:
Since the migration, I have been trying to update our local copy with MOODLE_16_STABLE using cvs 1.12.12 with the following steps:
- mkdir /usr/local/cvs/moodle
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/moodle co -r MOODLE_16_STABLE moodle
cvs update -dP
? Copy of file.php
cvs update: Updating .
: No such file or directoryectory /cvsroot/moodle/moodle
cvs update: skipping directory
for user anonymouszation failed: server moodle.cvs.sourceforge.net rejected access to /cvsroot/moodle
cvs update: used empty password; try "cvs login" with a real password
I confess, I am a newbie to CVS, so I'm probably missing something very basic. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
