| Hi,
| The common way is to do a "svn dump" of your repository. Than you can
move the dump file to your backup server. To get a higher level of
security you can also implement a post-commit script that dumps the
incremental change after every commit. (See SVN book for details about
post-commit and svn dump)

Okay, but a backup of the whole repository would also work?
(I guess)

What should be the syntax for this svn dump ?

I'm using subversion-1.0.0-51 (from SuSE 9.1)

Please give answer to the mailingslist.

Kind regards,
