relocate repository

Reported by: jzheng24 Owned by: ctsai
Keywords: PEND Cc:
Private: no


MGED project is one sourceforge.net project (https://sourceforge.net/projects/mged/). It's website also hosted by sourceforge.net. We want to update the website. I committed the updated files. For update the website. I login in shell.sourceforge.net.

When I ran 'svn update'. I got following message:
svn: Repository moved temporarily to
'http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki/Subversion'; please relocate

I tried to relocate by using 'svn switch'. I followed the examples found in the
Internet. Below were the commands and the error messages I got:

svn switch

error message:
svn: The OPTIONS response did not include the requested
activity-collection-set; this often means that the URL is not

svn switch --relocate FROM TO

error message:
svn: 'http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki' is not a working copy
svn: 'http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki' does not exist

How can I relocate the repository? Any help are welcome!

Thanks in advance.

SVN is not used for the website files. If you wish to update your website, please see our documentation on Project web.

As for your SVN repository, that is for the source code for your project, the address for that is: https://mged.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/mged

Does this answer your question?

Thanks for your answer.

After I committed the source code for our project, I used shell connection to the sourceforget.net and ran 'svn update' command which can update the website as those files I committed in our project. It has worked until November, 2009. I tried this time. The problem is that repository relocated. I want to know how I can relocate the repository.

I will try to upload files to update the website.

To be clear, when I am referring to the "website" I am referring to this page: http://mged.sourceforge.net/

That space is not managed by SVN. If you are referring to a different page, please clarify so that we can make sure we are talking about the same thing.

Your repository has not changed location, it was, and still is located at https://mged.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/mged

What is the URL for your repository that you are trying?
