and when you say "import a file", you mean you did "svn import"?
I'm just guessing here, you should usually give a few more details (like
the command you used...) when asking about an error message...

So let's assume you did "svn import [some file]":
As far as I know, "svn import" is meant to be used for directories and
is "usually" used for the INITIAL import, when your repository is still
empty (and it appears yours is not).
After that, you should usually use "svn add".

Also, svn import is not meant to be used inside a working copy (I'm
guessing that's what you do?).

Check here:
and here:

If you still want to use svn import or if your problem is not related to
using svn import, you should tell us which command you used, if you're
importing a file or a directory, which files/directories are already
present in your repository and if all other subversion commands (like
checkout) work ok for that repository (i.e.: are you using the correct
server URL and port?)

Hope that helps,
