Rolling back a server to an earlier version (SVN)

To roll-back or revert asite to an earlier version of a committed file, just add the revision option (-r) to the svn up.

For example, to roll back global.css to an earlier revision, simply go into the svn repository browser and find the revision you want.

When you find the revision you want, make note of the revision number. Then path to the file in Putty onthe server and type

svn up global.css -r 5379

This will bring that version of the file to Cairo without altering anything in the repository
