After configuring a subversion server for web projects you should take care about the .svn directories and files, ¿how may I secure them from the Internet savage? I found an easy way to do it with the .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule .*\.svn/.* – [F]

Don’t forget to enable mod_rewrite, and if you are already using some rule like

RewriteRule ^.*$

be sure of writing first the new rule:

RewriteRule .*\.svn/.* – [F]

RewriteRule ^.*$
