Fun with Subversion

December 9th, 2009

Today I committed a change to the production server that was not yet ready for prime time. Don’t laugh. Ya’all have done it or will do it at one time or another.  Fortunately, I hadn’t yet restarted the server… so that bought me a little time.

A frantic Google search on roll back and revert revealed that what  I needed to do is merge. Jacob Wright goes into detail in his blog How to Roll Back Changes Using Subversion.

My coworker Dan Collis-Puro, found that an alternate, simpler way to achieve the same affect is to use the update command below (where 132 is the revision number I wanted to roll back to):

>> svn update -r132 .

Worked perfectly.  Thanks, Dan!
