Updating working copy URL
If your repository (server) address changes, your working copy
will need to be updated. Versions doesn't have support for the
svn relocate command. You will need to use the svn
command line to update the working copy with the new server info,
then recreate the Repository Bookmark.
If you are using Subversion 1.7+:
- Delete your server's Repository Bookmark from Versions.
When prompted, choose "Keep Folder" to preserve your
working copy in it's current location.
- Open Terminal and switch to your working copy's root
Run the following command:
svn relocate https://new/repository/url
You can confirm your working copy is using the new URL with this command:
In Versions, re-add your working copy by clicking "Bookmarks > New Working Copy Bookmark".
Click the folder button to choose your working copy path then click "Create".
Your Repository bookmark will be automatically created using the new URL information in your working copy.
You can find out more about the
command by either typing
svn help relocate on the
command line, or viewing the online documentation:
If you are using Subversion 1.6 or earlier, you will need to use
svn switch --relocate instead. Details for this
command are available either using 'svn help switch' or online:
