External Subversion Client

External Subversion Client

In addition to working with the MQL5 Storage directly from the MetaEditor, you can use any external client that supports Subversion 1.7. For example, Tortoise SVN.

Example of connecting to the storage via Tortoise SVN

To connect to the previously created personal MQL5 Storage through Tortoise SVN installed on your computer, create any folder. This folder will be synchronized with the storage. Next, open the context menu of the folder and choose "SVN Checkout":

SVN Checkout

A window of data checkout appears:

Data checkout

In the "URL of repository" field, enter the address of the storage of type https://storage.mql5.com/svn/Personal/<MQL5.community account>/MQL5, where <MQL5.community account> is the name of your account at MQL5.community.

Account specification is case sensitive.

Then click "OK". If you see an error validating the certificate with which connection to the repository is encrypted, agree to accept the certificate permanently (Accept certificate permanently). This is a trusted certificate issued by Thawte Inc.

Accept certificate permanently

Next, you need to specify the login and password of your MQL5.community account:

Authentication

After successful authentication, the data will be downloaded from the repository to a local folder. Now you can work with the repository via Tortoise SVN.
