RE: Corrupted Database

After going through some backups last night I found one that was not
corrupted, althought its dated (03/28/2005).

I could use it do get a dump at least...

So, what do I have to do now to convert my backend to FSFS?

Thanks for your help,

Can you still check out and commit files to the repository(ies)? I had a
similar experience about a month ago and ended up converting to a 1.1x
FSFS (Filesystem based) repository. I haven't had a problem since. With
the BDB backend, I used to recover at least twice a week.

I'll share what I did if you reply saying you're interested, but I had a
three-day-old backup to go off of, so if you don't have one, then this
won't be useful and I apologize. The backup consisted of an svnadmin
dump, and it's a good thing it was there. In my experience with the
Subversion BDB, it's not worth trying to recover, but that's just me. I
cut my losses and went with the upgrade. Ideally, and SQL backend would
be nice, but that's in the (hopefully) near future.

Anyway, if you're interested, let me know. I'd hate to waste your time
if you're already stressing about the repositories' current state.
