Trying to get a new install up and running as a noob in Ubuntu on Virtualbox.
I am following a tutorial, which directs me to install
sudo svn export --force http://svn.magentocommerce.com/source/ branches/1.9 public_html/
However running the command generates a couple of errors.
For as far as I know, direct downloads of the Magento source code are no longer available. You might want to just download it via your browser or you could clone it from Github via https://github.com/OpenMage/magento-mirror.
