Running svnadmin load is the fastest way. But if you can not do that,
there's another (much slower) way: svnsync

But for svnsync to work, the remote repository must be completely empty
and have the pre-revprop-change hook activated to allow changes to revprops:

if that's done, you can 'upload' your dump file to the remote
repository. But first you have to create a local repository and import
the dump there. Then:

$ svnsync init --username YOURUSERNAME https://remote.com/svn
$ svnsync sync --username YOURUSERNAME https://remote.com/svn
