Setting HTTP Proxy for SVN

Edit the servers file

/etc/.subversion/servers

and set the proxy server and port.

Uncomment and change the lines necessary:

[global]
# http-proxy-exceptions = *.exception.com, www.internal-site.org
http-proxy-host = yourproxy.server.com
http-proxy-port = 8080

# http-proxy-username = defaultusername
# http-proxy-password = defaultpassword
# http-compression = no
# http-auth-types = basic;digest;negotiate
# No http-timeout, so just use the builtin default.
# No neon-debug-mask, so neon debugging is disabled.
# ssl-authority-files = /path/to/CAcert.pem;/path/to/CAcert2.pem


If you get some error like this:

svn: /etc/.subversion/servers: 148: Option expected

then it means that you have a space at the start of the property which you have un-commented. Make sure that there is no space in the beginning of the property in the servers file.
