RE: what is the name of the Windows svnserve server?

Thank you all for your replies. OK, Ulrich was correct - in fact the repository was not created. Why did I think it was - well, ...

I followed the manual on how to start svnserve as Windows service, which is a recommended practice. After that was done, I noticed that the service created a new empty directory c:\svn_repository.

I think it is very reasonable, for a beginner, at this point to assume, that the service created the new (empty) repository already. Don't you agree?

Maybe there should be a mention in the Tortoise manual, where it talks about how to start svnserve, that starting it, even though it creates some empty directory, it is not really a "repository" yet. After all, the manual is for beginners.

Anyway, thank you very much. Mark
