I was trying to get subversion to a single file , but kept having this error:

svn: Try ‘svn help’ for more info
svn: Explicit target required (‘config.php’ interpreted as prop value)

To get subversion to ignore a single file in a directory , so that it doesn’t get sent as part of a commit use this shell command:
(to be entered at the root of the subversion controlled file system)

svn propset svn:ignore “config.php”  php_includes/

Useful for configuration files and other server unique things
