I'm running Visual SVN server. I created a repository. I see my repository in this directory, C:\Repositories. I also installed tortoise SVN, so now how do I upload a project to source control?

Attempt 1

Import C:\dev\apache-ofbiz-09.04 to https://smallville/svn
Repository moved permanently to 'https://smallville/'; please relocate

Attempt 2

Command: Import C:\dev\apache-ofbiz-09.04 to https://smallville  
Error: OPTIONS of 'https://smallville': 200 OK (https://smallville)  

Attempt 3 & 4

tried with localhost, same errors

edit: i was using the wrong URL -- they look like this


you can get it if you navigate to the target repository, right click, copy URL to clipboard.

Did you try clicking on the hyperlink in the VisualSVN manager? It should open a web browser to the page. If it does not, try adding Repositories to the URL (or whatever the name of the directory your repositories are stored in).

  • Right-click on your project folder
  • Select the TortoiseSVN submenu and click Import
  • Enter your SVN server (you can find the URL in the VisualSVN manager)
  • Enter additional optional information
  • Click OK

It should import the folder to the repository. Congratulations, you’ve just begun version-controlling your source!

  • Make some changes
  • Observe the TortoiseSVN overlays on the folder and files
  • Right-click your project folder
  • Select the TortoiseSVN submenu and click commit
  • View the changes (double-click specific items to diff them)
  • Add an update comment
  • Click OK

Congratulations, you’ve just updated your project. You can also revert or browser using either the TortoiseSVN repository browser, or your web-browser by going to the same URL.
