There are only few easy steps to migrate svn repository. This post is for my own notes, in case i forget how to migrate svn repository again!
Below is the steps to migrate SVN repository:-
- Start your terminal
$ svnadmin dump /path/to/your/repo > yourreporname.dump
$ scp yourreponame.dump firstname.lastname@example.org:/path/to/your/new/repo
This steps is to transfer your dump file to your new machine. You will prompt to enter password for the new machine.
- Now your SVN dump file should be in new machine
- Login to your new machine
svnadmin create reponame
svnadmin load reponame < yourreponame.dump
- Done, you just just migrated your svn repository
* If you dump file is too big for transfer, you can compress it using tar before sending over thru network.
Tar command for compress:
tar -zcf yourreponame.tgz yourreponame.dump
Tar command for uncompress:
tar -zxf yourreporname.tgz
