Re: delete/wipe out repositories?

  I don't want to steer you wrong - but when i was testing it was very easy to get rid of old test repositories - if you really never need them again. You can just remove the entire repository directory. I am using unix - so for example I have
              README.txt conf dav db format hooks locks
              README.txt conf dav db format hooks locks
  So - if i want to keep 'myotherone' and not 'mytestrepo', I can just remove them -
    rm -rf /svnrepos/myotherone
  Then it no longer exists - and you may use svnadmin create to create it again - Of course you could just move it out of the way and recreate it - until you are sure.
  Others may have different suggestions.

  Hi everybody,

I was just able to get my svnserve running and did some testing,
imported projects from Eclipse to svnserve and created some repositories.

Now I did enough testing and want to get rid of the test data, means
wipe out all repositories. Additional condition is: I want to create
repositories with the same names later for future production use.

As far as I understood the docs and faq it is not possible to delete the
repositories with svnadmin and recreate them with the same name.

Can anyone tell how to achieve what I want? Delete the database itself?
Which files exactly do I have to delete without damaging my installation
(did not do it myself and so can not reproduce it)? Any other easy way
to get back to the initial state (don't wanna lose server config and so
on, just the repositories)?

Thanks for pointing me towards a solution,
