Some pointers for the administration of Subversion running under Windows.

Creating a repository

svnadmin create {location}


Moving a repository

This process can be used to move repositories back and forth between *Nix systems and Windows based ones.

svnadmin dump {location} > {repository-name}.dmp
svnadmin create {repository-name}
svnadmin load {repository-name} > {location}{repository-name}.dmp

Subversion Security the Easy Way – Anoymous Access

If secure access to your repositories is less important you may want to consider an anonymous access paradigm. The svnserve.conf file I use to do this are included below

[general]
anon-access=write
auth-access=write
password-db=passwd

NB: This file must exist in the conf folder of every repository.
