Changing the server location of checked out Files with Subversion

I recently rebuilt my home domain controller and renamed my home domain that I use internally.

As a result, all the links to my subversion server are now broken.

In other words, my local working copy thinks it’s linked to a subversion server that it can no longer reach.

if only there were a way to update my local copy to let it know where to look…

first I opened terminal (on a mac here, open the cmd prompt on windows)

cd to the working directory

enter svn info – this will display where subversion thinks it’s pointing to

enter svn switch –relocate FROM http://oldpath  TO http://newpath
