@ComputerErik - I couldn't agree more. I tested our backup and all it well. I also had a second machine up and running. After a couple of days I finally decided just to restore the original server and get SVN re-setup.
@chickenjoy - I did try that, there are several good guides out there but it seems like anything and everything I did would results in an array that didn't want to start. Basically I chased my problem around in circles. So I had no choice but to get the server back up and running. I plan on setting up a virtual machine and breaking it, when I have some down time to do more testing.
GLAD I HAD A GOOD BACKUP PLAN
Thank you for the replies!!! Happy Holidays and best wishes!
