Re: What's the command for loading a new db

Thanks for this tip. I am not sure how I could've missed that command when
I did a svnadmin help?! I am running svnadmin load right now and it's
taking a long time on a repo of 3.5gb. Hopefully, it will not find any
errors. Thanks again.

The generic way to move a repo is with svnadmin dump and svnadmin load
commands which will deal with version differences and allow you to move the
tree under some parent in the new repo. However if everything is the same
but the location, all you should have to do is untar your hotcopy archive
and adjust any scripts or server startup configurations to use it.
