Hi,
I installed version 1.8.15, copied the working directory from an existing 1.6 version server to this new server. I su logged in as subvadm, cd to working directory, cd to one of the working directory ais_repos. I issued the command 'svn upgrade', but I got the error not a working copy root, file not found error. (please see the following copy and paste).
I am new to the Subversion. Please advise.
Thanks,
