Rename SVN Repository

Posted on Wed 14 November 2012 in blog

It happens sometimes: You'd like to rename your SVN repository. Well simply renaming the directory on the server won't do the trick.

Thanks to Miky Dinescu's post, we find that the best way to do this is use svnadmin dump and svnadmin load to export, and import the old repository into a new one, without losing anything.

I wrapped this process up in a nice, foolproof script. Hopefully it makes your life easier.
