new teamcity install - need help

Hi ,

I've just installed teamcity for the first time, i have installed it on a server which also has my visualsvn server installed, so everything is running from the same machine.

I want to automate the build process for our small company, everytime a developer checks in code i want teamcity to automatically build

so , i've gotten as far as naming the project......

editing my VCS root - "subversion"

i've given my svn connection settings

default config directory is checked

externals support is set to ignore externals

i'm using http , so no need for ssh

checkout on agent  - working copy format is 1.5

everything else is default

Create Build configuration ----->>>>>

Version control settings

I have added a root But I have not entered anything into edit checkout rules as i dont know what to input?????

also for VCS checkout mode?????

but again I dont understand build file path

Ross,

I have added a root But I have not entered anything into edit checkout rules as i dont know what to input?????
also for VCS checkout mode?????
and checkout directory?????

To create running build configuration it's enough to fill mandatory fields only. These fields could be left 'as is', without any modifications, just using default settings.

If you want to know more what each build configuration setting means, and how you can use it, please take a look at the documentation pages:

Creating and Editing Build Configurations

VCS Checkout Rules

VCS Checkout Mode

but again I dont understand build file path

Build file path should be relative to the checkout directory.

Here's an example to illustrate how you can specify the build file path. If VCS root is http://svn/project and VC structure like

Project

|-- folder1

    |-- buildfile

|-- folder 2
the path to build file should be folder1/buildfile, in this example.

Please feel free to ask any questions if you need more help.
