RE: RE: RE: svnadmin dump - Help Appreciated

Well that is the problem. The last backup was a few days old so the
working copies are later.

So I tried to just relocate to the exact same directory (just to see if
it worked) and though it said it relocated... when I tried to update it
said "Revision x does not exist". Would this message go away if I
actually moved the location? I am a little confused on the location. Do
I just switch it in my Apache conf (Location /projects)?

<Location /projects>
DAV svn
SVNPath C:\svn\myrepos
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Subversion Repositories"
AuthUserFile passwd

AuthzSVNAccessFile svnaccessfile
Require valid-user

What is the normal restore procedure in this case? It would be nice to
just be able to update and the working copy "gets its bearings".

Thanks for the reply.

If you reloaded all dumps, so that no working copy is past the last
revision, then you should be able to keep using your repository with
the existing working copies.

Also, if you restored it at a different location, you may be able to
let your users switch to it using 'svn switch --relocate'.
