I have installed VisualSVN Server 2.5.8 and Tortoise SVN 1.7.11.

My repositories are added to the SVN and can be seen in VisualSVN Server Manager.

However, I am not able to access the repository by browsing the URL or by right clicking on the repository and selecting browse menu.

I am using port 8443 and that port is open. Internet Explorer is in loading mode indefinitely when URL is fired on the browser.

What could this be?

If you have TortoiseSVN 1.7, you, probably also have CLI-client in TortoiseSVN installation.

Before you proceed on SU, please

  • Copy URL to the root of amy repo in Visual SVN Manager
  • In command prompt, run svn ls URL-OF-REPO and show output of command in question
  • You can also try to use this URL in browser (nicer, but less informative in case of errors)
