Is there a way to have a local backup of my SVN repository

Eugene Dvorkin Nov 16, 2011

Hi,

One of the requirement we have is to have backup file for our SVN repositories/ projects locally.

Is there a way, script or other procedure to get our repositories as a dump or any other way into out local server on schedule like cron job?

This requirement may apply to both SVN and Jira, but I more conserned about SVN for now.

Thanks

Yes, you can create a backup using 'svnsync' as per these instructions. Ensure that the user account you use to perform the svnsync has permission to read the full repository.

Maybe it can be helpful for you, there is a way to merge repositories so maybe you can include your old repository in the jira repository under your jusra project folder by matching trunk, branch and tag.
