I have always worked with 1 or 2 programmers. A new project we are starting will have 5 developers on the team. What kind of tools are available in managing the source code, versions etc...

We are developing in PHP with a MySQL database. I have found a few options online, however, I would like to know what the WHW members use and what they would recommend. I'm not against having to pay for a tool that can provide practical management of coding.

Subversion, Git, Mercurial (Hg).

Pick one. :)

I use subversion for source control, JIRA to track the development process, and Jenkins (Hudson) for just about everything else :)

[subversion.apache.org...]
[atlassian.com...]
[jenkins-ci.org...]

@eelixduppy is seems I need a development team for the development team!

Thanks for all the tips ~ I will be digging into it this weekend.

Anyone use SVN?

Yeah, I use Subversion and prefer it to Git which I also use.
