Running multiple SVN repositories using svnserve on Centos

We set up an SVN server according to the instructions here:

http://www.civicactions.com/blog/2010/may/25/how_set_svn_repository_7_simple_steps

And it worked great, we configured two repositories on that server, which were accessible as two SVN paths e.g.

svn://server/repo1

and

svn://server/repo2

Acting normal, both on same port.

We had a power cut and the service didn't start - and came up with an error like so:

svnserve root path '/var/svn' does not exist or is not a directory

Open in new window


Which has never been a used path on our system.

After messing around for ages we got the daemon to start with the command:

svnserve -d -r /repo1 

Open in new window


But this only presented one repository.

How can we set up the default configuration to present both repos on the same port somehow?

It's Centos 7.

You must use apache and mod_dav_svn
(Or SVN+SSH)

Hi there

The solution was in fact to remove the default options from /etc/sysconfig/svnserve as these were confusing the daemon.

svnserve -d with no parameters allows connections to any repositories by explicit path, which is what we wanted.
