Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've used the following guide (up to step 5) to setup SVN on my personal server: http://blog.loadbalancer.org/how-to-setup-subversion/

Now I'm using TortoiseSVN on my client machine to import my work into the server. I've tried the URL svn://www.mysite.com/repos/project_name , but it gives me a "no repository found" error, even though I'm sure the SVN daemon is running.

My repository is setup under /home/svn/repos/project_name

Do you have any idea what I could be doing wrong? I've never done this before so I'm not sure how to troubleshoot it.

Your help is much appreciated

Normally, svn repositories can be found here:

svn://www.mysite.com/repo_name

...and svn over ssh repositories here:

svn://www.mysite.com/path-to-repos/repo_name

Oh ok. I got an error though saying "/home/svn/repos/project_name/conf/svnserve.conf:12: Option expected". I've checked the file and I found an uncommented "anon-acess = none" there. Why is it giving an error? seems alright to me. –  KeyStroke Sep 28 '09 at 7:54
    
Sorry, I'm not familiar with this error, but you may check the logs and try to run in verbose mode perhaps. –  Andrejs Cainikovs Sep 28 '09 at 8:07
    
Just found a space preceding all of the options, which produced the error. Once I removed those spaces, everything was working fine. Thanks! –  KeyStroke Sep 28 '09 at 8:08
