Hi all,

Sorry, in case it is answered before, but could not find by googling. I'm
running Subversion 1.6.1 with apache httpd 2.2.11 with LDAP on CentOS 5.x.
I have following structure of the repository named MyRepo :

   - folderA/
   - folderB/
   - folderC/

/trunk has these three folders. What I did was created a WC of /trunk and
run the following command to move "folderA" into "folderC" :

svn move http://myserver.mydomain.com/svn/MyRepo/folderA
http://myserver.mydomain.com/svn/MyRepo/folderC -m "folderA moved to

and command run successfully and new revision committed in the repository.
I checked in the repository and folder it moved, but when I right click and
show log of that folder it says folder does not exist but TortoiseSVN Repo
browser shows that folder is moved and it is visible.

 http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.6/svn.ref.svn.c.move.html says that it is
possible to move WC--> WC and URL-->URL. But i'm not sure if I'm missing
something here?

Does URL-->URL move retain the history too ?

Can someobdy point as to what is wrong here?
