Can't import from SVN

I'm currently using the OnDemand SVN server, but I need to move to BitBucket. I've already selected the migration option and can log into BitBucket.

When creating a repository I notice the option to import from SVN. I selected that option and entered my URL, username and password.

The process fails with "authorization failed" and "rejected Basic challenge".

I verified the username and password...not sure what else to try. Any suggestions?

Hi Michael,

In order to perform the migration this option is unfortunately not possible. We have created the following procedure to help you out during your migration process. Please take a look at this page

You could use the SVN importer in Bitbucket, but it won't take any of your hisotry. When you use the Bitbucket importer, we do exactly the following:

svn export https://URL_TO_REPOSITORY/PATH NEW_DIRECTORY
cd NEW_DIRECTORY
git init
git add -A
git commit -m "Initial commit by Bitbucket importer"
git push -u origin master

This means you don't keep any history, tags or branches from subversion.
