Actually, my working copy is NOT pointing to my new server yet. I
just wanted to get confirmation that the steps I'm going to take in my
last message was not going to corrupt anything, as it's just a
straight copy and paste of the repository folder from one server to

Please advise.

> So, your working copy is already pointing to your new server. I assume you checked this out from your new server? If so, you don't need to do a relocate. You only need to relocate working copies that were checked our from the old server. Or, you can just do a new checkout from the new server. Either way will work. Doing the relocate lets you keep working with an existing WC so you don't lose and possible pending changes or have to d/l your whole project again.
