Re: Using TSVN to connect to multiple repositories on same server?

Thanks, Erik.

When I use TSVN to go to svn://host.domain.com/repo2, SVN attempts to access
a subdirectory 'repo2' under the first repository I created. I can't log on
using the credentials I created for repo2, but can using the credentials I
created for the original repository.

The server is Subversion 1.2.3-r19776 running on Windows, if that makes a
difference.

I'm certain that I'm asking a stupid newbie question, but the fact is that I
AM a stupid newbie, and I do appreciate the assistance.

It might help to see the specific URL you are trying to use. It sounds like
you are using svnserve for your server.

For me, something like

svn://host.domain.com/repo1

and

svn://host.domain.com/repo2

work just fine. If a user doesn't have permissions on a particular repo,
then he won't be able to get at files. If you use TortoiseSVN, you can see
the base of the repository even if there's nothing really there. That is,
you'll see what looks like to top of the repository in the TSVN Repository
Browser, but you'll get an error if you try to drill down into it.
