RE: Trouble accessing multiple repositories on the same server

Ryan,

Thanks for your response.
I created a new folder c:\repos and I have successfully moved my original
repository \svn and the new repository \svn2 into it.

I then restarted svnserve with the -r c:\repos setting.
Everything is working with no problems.

However I have not reviewed the hook scripts for patch references.
I will do this asap.

Thanks again
Kevin

Yes, you can move a repository to a new location. The repository
files do not store their absolute path anywhere. You would need to
update your svnserve or apache configuration files to look for the
repository in its new location. If you've written any hook scripts,
you should check them as well for possible occurrences of the
absolute path to the repository.
