RE: Error after subversion upgrade

The main problem is that I didn't do the upgrade (and I'll admit that I don't know much about the administration of subversion). I can see that a dump file of the old repository was created. I also see a directory that appears to be a backup of the old repos directory. There is a new repos directory in place. Is it safe to do a load of the dump file? What will happen if this was already done?

I don't know if this is the cause of your exact problem, but: I'm
pretty sure you need to upgrade your database. It's not too painful:

* reinstall 0.37 or whatever version you had

* do `svnadmin dump /your/repos > big-dump'

* remove 0.37, install 1.0.5

* move old repository out of the way: `mv /your/repos

* `svnadmin create /your/repos'

* `svnadmin load /your/repos < big-dump'
