I have to add a project to the SVN server repository and I would be thankful to get some links or little help on how to do that.
The URL to the SVN repository is
The project is located on the desktop. The path is
and the name of the project is <em>BDRAsigurariViata v1.0.zip</em>.
I tried to add the project this way
svn import /Users/name/Desktop/BDRAsigurariViata v1.0.zip https://192.168.1.4:448/svn/BDRAsigViata
But it isn't working. Am I supposed to follow other steps too, in order to be able to do that?
I get the error:<blockquote>
svn: E205000: Try 'svn help' for more info svn: E205000: Too many arguments to import command</blockquote> Answer1:
<strong>[Tedious mode ON]</strong> Are you trying to add a ZIP archive to a <em>version control</em> repository? Apache Subversion is a <em>version control</em> system, not a simple file storage or Dropbox! It's designed to store and manage your code. Since you use the term "project", I assume that you simply zipped your source code files and wanted to commit them as the archive. That's not how it works. <strong>[Tedious mode OFF]</strong>
Nevertheless, the command you need is
svn import "C:\Users\name\Desktop\BCRAsigurariViata v1.0.zip" "https://192.168.1.4:448/svn/BCRAsigViata/BCRAsigurariViata v1.0.zip" -m "Commit Message"
Since you are new to Apache Subversion and VisualSVN Server you definitely should set aside some time to read <a href="http://www.visualsvn.com/support/svnbook/" rel="nofollow">SVNBook</a>. These introductory topics are highly recommended for novice Apache Subversion users:<ul><li><a href="http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.8/svn.intro.whatis.html" rel="nofollow">What Is Subversion?</a> </li> <li><a href="http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.8/svn.basic.html" rel="nofollow">Fundamental Concepts</a></li> <li><a href="http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.8/svn.tour.html" rel="nofollow">Basic Usage</a></li> </ul>
As a Windows user, I strongly recommend you to consider <a href="http://tortoisesvn.net/" rel="nofollow">TortoiseSVN</a> client (and it's <a href="http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/index.html" rel="nofollow">manual</a> in addition to the above docs).Answer2:
Your command looks strange with the backslash. The first one and the one in front of the server URL looks like they don't belong. Also I believe you need to escape the spaces in your path. (but I wouldn't put the last file, you want a directory).
I would write this command:
svn import /Users/name/Desktop https://192.168.1.4:448/svn/BCRAsigViata
except you might not want to put your whole "Desktop folder".
