After a hosting provider-switch I received a (gzipped) dump-file containing my subversion-repository. As I have precious little svn-administration experience, I was unsure how to handle the dump-file. Google initially send me in the wrong direction (dump/restore), but the second try was more productive.
I have no intention of running a svn-repository (partial to git), I just needed the files of the last revision. The following commands will accomplish this.
# unzip the dump-file $ gunzip backup.dump.gz # create a directory for the repository $ mkdir backup_repo # initiate a svn-repository $ svn init backup_repo # load the dump-file $ sudo svnadmin load backup_repo < backup.dump # temporary host the repository $ svnserve -r backup_repo/ -d # export the files $ svn export svn://localhost backup
This will result in a folder "backup" with the last version of all the files in the repository, without the .svn directories.
