Checkout specific file version from CVS


1. After login to the production system server, go to the folder of the project

cd [project_folder_path]

2. Checkout the correct revision from CVS, for a specific file

cvs checkout -r [file_revision_number] [file_folder_path/file_name]

Note: The option "-r [file_revision_number]:" performs the checkout of the specified revision.


cd /home/projects/myWebsite
cvs checkout -r 1.14 public_html/events/localEventMenu.jsp
