on Ubuntu, I have SVN setup. I have created a repository called 'siteinabox' and imported the files. On the same machine, I can checkout via file://

This command works:

Input: svn checkout  file:///svn/siteinabox

But this command doesn't work (I tried from the same machine):

Input:  svn checkout  svn://localhost/siteinabox  
Output: svn: URL 'svn://localhost/siteinabox' doesn't exist

Ultimately my aim is to access the repo from a remote machine. Currently, it gives the same error from remote machine.


I found the answer: I previously had started svnserve like this:

svnserve -d -r /svn/project

However, instead of the above command the svnserve should be started like this

svnserve -d -r /svn
