I have sorted out the problem myself by using the following command,
svnadmin create --fs-type=fsfs <repo-path>
The above command will help you in creating the repository with the
filesystem not the berkely db. I managed to setup the SVN server... it is
all working fine on the server...
Now the trouble is...
Connecting to the SVN server from the client. I tried running the svnserve
on the server and used the following urls to connect to the server...
But, no luck. It always came up saying the following, it works fine in
local. Do I need RSH / SSH enabled in the server where SVN server is running
to make it work?
A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly
respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because
connected host has failed to respond.
svn: Can't connect to host 'IP': A connection attempt failed because the
connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or
established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
