Howto take a dump

December 19, 2007

That’s right, a subversion repository dump. I was browsing the ubuntu forums and this post (from May, 2006) reminded me that backing up my subversion repository is always a good idea. Using

> svnadmin dump SVN_REPO_PATH > SVN_Backup.dump

creates a nice compact dump file for easy backup. Using

> svnadmin create NEW_SVN_REPO
> svnadmin load NEW_SVN_REPO < SVN_Backup.dump

will load the backup dump file into a new repository.
