SVN can use three different methods to serve repositories: apache,
svnserve or local file access. The way you select is with the protocol
part of the URL. If you specify file:/// then you are using local file
access (TortoiseSVN acts as both client and server). You may have
xampp installed, but in this case it is not being used.

That's just the convention used - it works from the repository's point
of view. The act of creating a new local working copy is called
Checkout, and updating that working copy is called Update. You
*really* need to read the docs.
