Re: Cached links to old reposotory location

Here's what happened.

We have serveral repositories I'll call them repoA, repoB, repoC on our server.

RepoA was stored at C:\Reporoot\
RepoB was stored at C:\Reporoot\Repositories\RepoB\
RepoC was stored at C:\Reporoot\Repositories\RepoC\

I wanted to standardise our repositories and so physically moved all folders and files from C:\Reporoot\ to C:\Reporoot\Repositories\RepoA\

So SVNServe can see both locations. As Svnserve's root was pointed at C:\Reporoot which was the original location for RepoA.

I'm confused its a server problem as I can commit folder files and my colleague can't.

Sounds like a server config error then. Just to be clear, you
physically moved the repository folder to a new location, as opposed
to creating a new location inside the same repository and moving the
project there?

Does svnserve know about the new location? Presumably it can't also
see the old location?
