I have a problem accessing my SVN repository. After re-booting my Linux host, my SVN repositories on that host are in-accessible. Although I can create new repositories on that host with the svnadmin create command, the newly created repositories are still not accessible. In the configuration file of the repository I have enabled Read/Write for anonymous access, but this doesn't seem to help.

What could be the problem? If SVN needs to be restarted or something, how do I do that safely?

How did you access your repo before? Using svn://host/, http://host (or https://host), svn+ssh://host/ ..? – Lekensteyn May 17 '11 at 15:52
@Chris - Instead of making fun of the poster's (likely non-native) English, why didn't you just correct the question instead? – ire_and_curses May 17 '11 at 15:54

I was accessing the svn repository from Eclipse by adding the repository url svn://host/path-to-repo – acoolguy May 17 '11 at 17:05
