Partly. relocate is a client function which is used to point your
working copy at a different repository location. But it won't push
your local repository onto the server. That's a server admin job.

You need to handle this in 2 stages.

First, move your repository from your local machine to the server. If
your server is already handling multiple repositories just put it
alongside the others. If your server has all projects in a single
repository, and you want to add yours, you will have to use svnadmin
to load the content of your private repository into the general
repository. This will add as many revisions as your private repository
has to the global repository.

Second, relocate your working copy to point at the repository served
up by your server. It would be a good idea to rename your private
repository so you don't access it my mistake and commit changes to the
wrong repo.
