Subversion's default protocol is the svn. http protocol is extented by apache to subversion. You have two options:

1- You can re-fetch whole project by svn co snv:// blah_project_2 near to old one and continue on new one..

2- You can change server adres by svn command: svn switch --relocate svn://
