Installing Wordpress or Updating Using Sub Version

November 09, 2009

Installing wordpress via subversion couldn't be simpler follow the steps below.

Navigate to the directory on your site in which you wish to create the new installation of wordpress.

//If you need to create the directory run this
$ mkdir blog (or other name of your choice, or you could just install it into the route of your site)

$ cd blog

$ svn co http://core.svn.wordpress.org/trunk/ .

If you already have a copy of wordpress on your server and are looking to just update, run the following code.

$ cd blog

$ svn up

Now you should see all the files flying into your new installation!
