Re: Unable to connect to SVN repository

Stefan and Thorsten,

Thank you your helpful suggestions :-)

I can access the data from my client now - original problem resolved.

I created a directory called "Sandbox" which contains two subdirs and
some files. I then imported the "Sandbox" directory. However, I was
expecting to SVN to import the "Sandbox" directory also which it didn't.
Is that by design? How can I do an import and get the directory
structure that I expect?

Thanks again.

svnserve will try to access repositories relative to the path you pass
for --root, by appending to --root the path which follows the hostname
part given in the svn:// URL.

So you need to pass the parent directory of your repositories as --root
parameter, rather than the repository itself. Then you can access each
repository by using its name in the svn:// URL.
