Help Getting Started

Hello List:

I've been expounding the benefits of source control for years. I've even used
it on a few projects, but it's mostly been supported by others. I'm now running
my own project and need to implement it for local as well as network (i.e.
Internet) access. I've chosen Subversion (of course).

So, I've installed the latest version of svn 1.4.0, and have TortoiseSVN 1.3.5,
but I understand that's outside the scope of this list. I'm running all this on
a Win2K workstation, which has XAMPP installed. So to recap:

svn 1.4.0
Apache 2.2.2
PHP 5.1.4

Because of the version of Apache, I can't use the DAV modules, which I
understand were built for 2.0, and won't work with 2.2 (I tried and it didn't
work). So I'll have to use svnserver for network access to my repository.

I was able to create a repository on my G: drive like so:

G:\>svnadmin create svnrepo

That's where I ran out of luck... Here are the next few lines and their errors:

G:\>svn import cityfax E:\Websites\cityfax\site
svn: Invalid URL 'E:/Websites/cityfax/site'

G:\>svn import cityfax file://E:\Websites\cityfax\site
svn: Could not use external editor to fetch log message; consider setting the
$SVN_EDITOR environment variable or using the --message (-m) or --file (-F) options
svn: None of the environment variables SVN_EDITOR, VISUAL or EDITOR is set, and
no 'editor-cmd' run-time configuration option was found

G:\>svn ls
svn: '.' is not a working copy

G:\>svn checkout cityfax
svn: Client error in parsing arguments

G:\>svn checkout svn://cityfax
svn: No repository found in 'svn://cityfax'

So, a few questions:

- How do I check what's currently in the repository?
- Did my import work?
- If my import did not work, how can I make it work?

That's it for now. Baby steps. Thanks for your help!
