I have recently installed TortoiseSVN on Windows and have two computers, A and B. On both machines I installed TortoiseSVN and they are connected via LAN, and I have my repository saved in computer A.

I want to access/checkout the repository in Computer A from Computer B, so I tried this URL in the repository to SVN checkout from Computer B,

but I got an error message as:

repository moved permanently to ''; please relocate

I tried some other URLs as well like,

These didn't work either... What am I missing? What URL and settings should I be using to access? Or what is the procedure to create a Subversion repository locally and access it in a group of computers connected via LAN/WAN?

  • The error that you're getting is a problem with the Apache configuration on computer A. Can you provide that configuration? – Shane Madden Jan 18 '12 at 17:36
  • I got the solution, I didnt actually have a SVN server installed, with which i could retrieve the repository through a specific URL. I installed VisualSvn and that solved the problem . – Salman Jan 19 '12 at 6:31

Within your filemanager (or Windows Explorer), right click within a directory. There should be the entry TortoiseSVN. Then select Project archive. In the next window you'll see URL. That's the one you must change.
