Migration of SVN from windows to linux


Hi,

please forgive if i went wrong.

I'm moving my SVN repository from windows to linux. Setting up the SVN in linux get completed,also i took the dump from windows and import the content to linux. while setting up the SVN in linux,i didn't install apache and configure,users are going to checkin through TortoiseSVN client from windows.

Actually my doubt is,when a person checked-out a folder from windows SVN earlier,Now i migrated to linux,if he wants to update his new content to Linux SVN,what procedure and settings he need to follows so that he can commit his changes to the new SVN server in Linux.

Thanks in Advance!

During checkout SVN store in the .svn directory different information.
One of the files (.svn/entries) contains IP or hostname - depend of how checkout was done - of SVN server.

In order to user be able continue to work with his checked-out directory after migration your newSVN server should have same IP/hostname

Hello there...

Two other ways to do it:

A)
1) All users check in their work to the trunk.
2) Remove local directories of the users
3) Do a fresh svn checkout

B)
If the user has uncommited work on his computer
Check out the svn switch --relocate command.
