Of course, you'll make a backup of the repository and conf files
before making changes, in case anything goes wrong. I would suggest
you use the svnserve_stop.sh script you found. Then verify whether
this has in fact stopped svnserve. If so, then use svnserve_start.sh
to see if svnserve starts back up and serves the repositories again.
If so, then I would say you've found the pair of scripts that's used
to control your server, and should look inside svnserve_start.sh to
see how to specify the different -r parameter.
