Erik, thanks for the detailed explanation, here are the steps I did

 

1. Created a repository using "svnadmin create"
2. Then did a svn checkout for the repository using tortoise svn
3. Added some folders /files to the repository using tortoise svn
4. Commit/update using TSVN
5. Everything is fine, while accessing the URL of the repository,
it shows 4 revisions(which I have added)
6. But at the db/revs folder it still shows 0, should it be 4 here
too?

 

Regards

R.R.Vishwanath

        Erik, thanks for the reply, but my doubt is why this does not
reflect in revs folder, but in the current file its get incremented.

         

         

        That's because

         

        /server/directory/containing/repository-name/db/revs/0

         

        is a directory containing files of data which SVN uses to manage
your versioned files. These are not complete copies of files you store
in the repository, in general.

         

        You cannot go into the repository using shell commands to get
copies of your versioned files. You must use SVN commands or the SVN API
to do that. Use either the native SVN client, or another client
program. I like TortoiseSVN on Windows and recommend it.

         

        I'm being a bit general here because I cannot explain the
technical details of the repository format. There should be no reason
why you would need to enter the repository itself, except maybe in some
really unusual circumstances. Even maintenance is done with SVN
commands and scripts.

         

        It might help if you posted a bit more about what you are trying
to do, or what you are expecting about what SVN is doing. That would
help in deciding whether something is wrong, and not simply not what you
are expecting.

         

        Erik
