Re: Subversion not checking out to live

Hi David,

First, please try to format your mail a little bit. It's very hard to
read if you don't make paragraphs.
Also, usually a *sentence* starts with big letters, not every *line*.
And my present to you, since you seem to not have enough of those:
Those are used to separate sentences so that someone else reading your
stuff knows when to breathe.

Sorry if I seem a little bit harsh here. But eMail is no excuse for not
writing properly. At least if you expect an answer.

Ok, I've now read your mail four times. I still don't quite get what
your problem is. You're telling a lot about the versions of your
business system, but no info we could really use to find out what's wrong.

Let me try summarize what *could* be your problem:
* you have a website, which is served from a working copy which is
updated regularly by a script (or manually).
* after you ran some migration script, the website isn't updated
anymore. But you don't know what that script did.
* the website is hosted on a unix/linux server.

Did I miss something? I think not.
So, basically, all you told us is "my system doesn't work anymore, do
you know what's wrong with it?".
Sorry, can't resist:

Still, I can give you some hints about what you can try:

A working copy is assigned to a specific url. If you changed your
'current' version from one path in the repository to another, you have
to *switch* (svn switch) your working copy to that new path.

Since you're having problems on a linux/unix server, why do you ask here
on the TortoiseSVN list? TortoiseSVN is a windows only client. Please
ask on the Subversion mailing list.
