Can SVN or git be set up on an OS X Lion Server?

How does Lion server work along with other services outside its control?

If I wanted to install WordPress, or MAMP or SVN, how would it be done on OS X Lion Server?

If you install Xcode (for manually building things), you can pretty much install anything. SVN and git are no problem at all. WordPress hosting is also not a problem. – slhck Feb 16 '12 at 13:48
Thanks, can it be setup without xcode? I dont want to use it as my dev computer, just a server. I dont want to waste the 3ish gigs on xcode just for svn though. – user773578 Feb 16 '12 at 13:58
Well, that's with the newest builds in mind. You can install precompiled binaries as well. Same goes for Git (here, the Snow Leopard version should work). – slhck Feb 16 '12 at 14:05
Thanks. So I can install mamp, svn everything as usual on a system running lion server? – user773578 Feb 16 '12 at 14:10
I believe so, but SVN ang git clients are not really a big deal. I don't run Lion Server and I don't know how MAMP would interfere though. If you have MAMP you can probably just turn off the Lion Server features. – slhck Feb 16 '12 at 14:20

Installing SVN and MAMP is possible in osx lion. you will get the binaries for installing subversion from here and for installing MAMP from here. But my opinion is installing Git rather than SVN in OSX,as it is more secure.
