RE: Error after subversion upgrade

The upgrade was indeed done correctly. (Of course, my problem was that I couldn't get in contact with the person who did the upgrade -- he works remotely.)

I did finally get in contact with him, and we figured out that the problem seems to be related to having the repos configured to the root of Apache.

In the following error notice the path:

commits with fail with:
svn: applying log message to
//!svn/wbl/dafd7a36-77dd-0310-8dd8-f106bb595ebe/1658: 404 Not Found (....)

There are two slashes. Thus the server replies with http://ourserver.com:8080//!svn... and thus the 404 error. A workaround of moving the repository from / to /svn makes it work correctly. A bug was submitted: http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1934

Thanks for your help,

Good. I assume you can talk to whoever did that stuff, and find out
what the situation is.
    NS> Is it safe to do a load of the dump file?

Probably not; you should only load that file into a newly-created
repository. It sounds like the new repos that you mentioned might be
waiting for you to load the dump. Here's how to find out (assuming
you can't talk to whomever created it): do `svnlook youngest
/path/to/repos'. That will print a number. If the number is 0, it's
safe for you to load the dump.

    NS> What will happen if this was already done?

I imagine your computer will explode ... seriously, I don't know what
will happen, but I do know It Will Be Bad So Don't Do It.
