Changing SVN Server URL Client-side using Relocate

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

I recently moved into a new place, and as many of we fellow nerds often know, that generally means time for some technology re-organization as well.

In my case I am speaking of wiping a server clean, putting on the new Server 2008, and re-deploying all of my previous server applications.

SVN (VisualSVN to be exact) was no exception to my chaos, and I also decided it was time to change to a secure connection for external SVN. My SVN repositories are quite large, and didn't want to have to re-checkout on all of my client computers.

I never knew this, after the millions of right-click commits I have done with TortoiseSVN you would think I'd noticed this by now, but there is a facility just for what I was trying to do.

It is known as switch, and the syntax (at the command-line) is:
svn switch --relocate previousurl newurl

For those TortoiseSVN users out there you can simply right-click on your checkout, select Relocate, and it will take you through the rest.

Worked like a champ for me in both cases, and saved me a ton of time!

Relocatin' Tom Out.
