SVN initial import error

software development

#1

Hi everyone,

I’m somewhat experienced with Subversion, but I’m new to SVN on Dreamhost.

I’m having problems intially importing my code to my repo and I’m wondering if anyone could help me out. Here’s what I’ve done:

I created a subdomain: svn.mysite.com

I created a repo: svn.mysite.com/app and I got the e-mail saying it was set up

I ran: " svn import /localdir http://svn.mysite.com/app -m “initial import” "

And I get: svn: ‘/app’ does not exist

I can navigate to svn.mysite.com/app via a browser though, and log in and see the empty repository. What am I doing wrong here? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
