You say you're trying to import into "trunk" in the repository?

The command you gave is trying to import a local directory named trunk, into the root directory of the repository....

Run "svn help import" to learn what the correct arguments are.

Are you trying to import *from* the local current working directory? If so, you probbaly want the following:

svn import . http://host/svn/repos/trunk

Also, I think you're confusing the URLs to the repository. You're using a file URL that looks like it's pointing at an Apache directory... Your repositories probably aren't physically located in the Apache directory - I'm guessing that the Apache URL /svn/repos is mapped to some other local directory by the Apache httpd.conf. So, you either want:

svn import . http://host/svn/repos/trunk


svn import . file:///E:/svn-repos-directory/trunk

(I'm assuming your Apache configuration isn't using the SVNParentPath directive - if so, you need to add the repository name as an extra path component just before "/trunk".
