RE: Trouble accessing multiple repositories on the same server

Thanks for the ideas.
It seems like a great way could solve the issue but I have some further

Do you know:
1. Can you simply move a repository from one folder to another? My first
svn repository (C:\SVN) is active and has many files in it. The other
(C:\SVN2) is new so I can recreate it in a different location such as
c:\repos\svn2 with no trouble. But the first one has many files and I wonder
if just moving it is OK. I rather thought there might be some references to
the original location that could cause issues if files were moved and the
references were not updated.
2. Will the svn authentication process use the separate passwd files based
on which repository a user is connecting to?
(eg. C:\repos\svn\config\passwd and C:\repos\svn2\config\passwd)
Because I have two different sets of users each of who should only have
access to a single repository. I have the correct users set up in the
separate passwd files.

Thanks in advance for you time to review this.
By the way I am located outside of Philadelphia PA.
How about you? Just curious.

You should probably put both repositories under some other common folder
(eg. C:\repos\svn and C:\repos\svn2) and specify that folder (-r
c:\repos). Just seems safer that way.

If you've got c:\repos\svn and c:\repos\svn2 with -r c:\repos, then the
access urls are:
