Never been to TextSnippets before?

Snippets is a public source code repository. Easily build up your personal collection of code snippets, categorize them with tags / keywords, and share them with the world (or not, you can keep them private!)

Clean Textpattern install from the current repository (See related posts)

In a shell, cd to the directory from which you'd like to serve the site, and rename or delete any '.htaccess' or 'index.php' files, and any directories called 'images' or 'files', that may be there.

Checkout the current code:

svn co .

(Note the dot at the end). To complete the installation, just load http://thesiteurl/textpattern/ in a browser, fill in your database info, and when presented with the config.php block, copy it, go back to the shell client and:

nano textpattern/config.php

Paste in the code block, save and exit (ctrl-x, then y, then return).

Back to the browser, click through, add personal details, and that, as they say, is it.

Whenever you want to update to the latest code, cd to the same directory and:

svn update

...and the latest code will be seamlessly integrated with your installation.

The 'current' directory seems to no longer exist on the TxP subversion server, these instructions might help
