I have googled it profusely but still am quite confused about how to remove an svn repository:
I have accidentally imported the contents of a directory into the repo instead of the directory itself and now I need to remove everthing from the repo (in fact i would like to just delete the repo and re-create it).
the final comment is:
"you can svn delete directories, but if you want to get rid of the entire repo forever-ever, just delete the database file
from your repo directory. since the project info is self-contained in its .svn directory, the correct way to delete a repository is actually to delete the directory.
- what is this 'database file' being referring to?
- what is 'the directoy' being referred to?
From local server:
svn list -v svn+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/home/subversion/repos/
1 subversi Mar 20 12:36 ./
1 subversi 39 Mar 20 12:36 access-logs
1 subversi Mar 20 12:36 etc/
1 subversi Mar 20 12:36 mail/
1 subversi Mar 20 12:36 public_ftp/
1 subversi Mar 20 12:36 public_html/
1 subversi Mar 20 12:36 tmp/
1 subversi 16 Mar 20 12:36 www
directly on svn server (where repos lives):
README.txt conf db format hooks locks
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
