Re: Problem with commit

Additionally, I had checked out a few files from the repository on an old
machine, and then I moved the repository to a new server. I didnot do a dump
and move, just did a tar and scp and untar of the entire repository. When I
try to check in to the new server [with the same hostname] it says
*
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Server sent unexpected return value (500 Internal Server Error) in
response to MKACTIVITY request for '/repos/papers/!svn/act/*
*a49a699c-96a7-11df-9e8f-**654930a0ec4e'*
