'svnadmin recover' can take a very long time depending on the state of
your repository. I've seen it return immediately, and I've watched it
churn for hours. For recovery to work, though, the recovery process
*must* be the only process accessing the repository. So, to be safe,
shutdown Apache and make sure nothing else is touching the repos
before you run 'svnadmin recover'.

Chances are very good that you did NOT destroy the repository.
