SVN - Migrating to new server

Probably a boneheaded question - but I'm gonna throw it out there.

One of my clients is migrating from one server company (dedicated server) to another (dedicated server).  I've got the configuration/webfiles/etc all covered - except for SVN.  I know next to nothing about SVN/configuring it/setting up the repositories/etc.

...and I'm not really interested in learning it right now either...lol

Is there a way for me to basically get the configuration files from the one server to another - to basically replicate "whatever you were doing over there - now do it over here"?

Thanks!

You would need to backup (svnadmin dump repository > repo.dmp
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn.ref.svnadmin.c.dump.html
Then using the same file, you would restore the data,
Svnadmin load repository_root_path <repo.dmp
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn.ref.svnadmin.c.load.html



You should make sure that that everyone checked in outstanding data prior.
Make sure no one can then access the old repository prior to starting the transition.
