RE: => Backup ?

Anthony,

I've been able to use a hotcopy, tar the resulting directory, and gzip the tar file.
I've then been able to take the file, extract it, then run svnserve pointing to the extracted directory as the repository without issue.

If this is the command: svnadmin hotcopy OLD_REPOS_PATH NEW_REPOS_PATH

I would suggest testing it by taking a hotcopy and running a server process against the NEW_REPOS_PATH to see if it works. You can easily accomplish this by running the server process on a different port to validate that everything is fine.

Subject: => Backup ?

Hello,

What is the simple way to make a repository backup in order to do a full restore later (if a problem occurred)?

Is "hotcopy" the best way?

How to restore a repository from a hotcopy?

Best regards,
Anthony

That is correct. You cannot checkout a single file, just a folder. You can use -N so that subfolders are not checked out.
