My current repository is : /var/www/svn/project.all my files within project folder.it doesn't have trunk,branches,tags structure as of now. Now i have created new project as "/var/www/svn/projectnew" with trunk,branches,tags. I took the Dump of "/var/www/svn/project" and loaded to "/var/www/svn/projectnew/trunck" and created one branch in "/var/www/svn/projectnew/branches/site1" from trunk.

Currently my Working copy pointing "/var/www/svn/project". i tried to switch my working copy from "/var/www/svn/project" to "/var/www/svn/projectnew/branches/site1" but it saying,

Repository UUID 'd3f06af7-c344-2d45-b1bd-7799e0e99d7a' doesn't match expected UID 'f5f9f6ac-3f50-7e4d-a9d4-0bc9a9b443b8'.

Help me on how i can go with this?


You should relocate your current working copy. Command svn relocate will help you.

  • SVN RELOCATE also not working - am getting the below error when i try to do svn relocate "The repositary at localhost/projectnew/branches/site1 has uuid 'yyyyy', but the WC has 'xxxxx'"
