Subject RE: restore error svnadmin: E160013: File not found
Date Fri, 27 Nov 2015 14:57:55 GMT
Oups...i think i need to do an upgrade.

And on the new server with SVN release 1.8 I need to do  : 

	svn upgrade my_hotcopy_repo

Is it a good approach ? (actually dump/load is not working for me)

Many thanks.

Thanks for your answer.

this is a good approach to replace svnadmin dump / load by hotcopy? I have never done that.

On the server with svn 1.6 release I'll be able to $ svnadmin hotcopy my_repo  /tmp/my_repo_copy

and after moving the copy from my old server /tmp /my_repo_copy to  the new SVN server with
version 1.8

Is this a good approach?

Those look like useful scripts. I'd run them with a "nohup" to keep a copy of both stdout
and stderr to in a local record, in case of missed errors.

There is also a point, when you're doing things like discarding revisions, that you need to
consider "do I want to keep this whole thing and ofrce people to reload all their working
copies, to skip the discarded revisions correctly? Sometimes, when people have committed bulky
and unnecessary binaries or re-arranged and re-arranged the structure, or when there's a lot
of broken old code or code with embedded plaintext passwords, that you can reasonable say
"just export the specific working directories to a new repository, with no history, and add
a README that says where the old repository is".
