Re: How to move a repository from one server to another?

Um, do those if you want to move his working copy.

To move a repository is another set of steps. As long as the OS is the same for his computer and the server (aka Windows of any version), see below. If the OS's are different (*nix vs. Windows), start reading the SVN book how to dump his repository and how to load it into a new one.

If no one is accessing the repository (read and write):

1). Copy the repository directory to the other server..

If people are still accessing the repository:

1) Find a copy of svn fast backup (there is shell script version and a python version) on his computer and run it.
2) Copy the backup directory to the other server.

For those who still need to access his repository, but just don't want to recreate their working copies, have them use the below suggestions.
