Migrate SVN Repositories

November 29, 2010

I recently had the need to migrate an SVN repository from one Unfuddle.com account to another. Their FAQ said that to import a repository you need to email customer service. I did and they quickly replied with this awesome info. I suppose that this would work with any SVN repo that supports svnsync.

All you need to do is run the following two commands:

  1. svnsync init –username USERNAME
    http://NEWACCOUNT.unfuddle.com/svn/NEWACCOUNT_REPO
    http://OLDACCOUNT.unfuddle.com/svn/OLDACCOUNT_REPO
  2. svnsync sync –username USERNAME
    http://NEWACCOUNT.unfuddle.com/svn/NEWACCOUNT_REPO

I’m watching the new repository sync with the old repository, full revision information and all, as I type this. Pretty cool. Thanks Unfuddle!
