    svnadmin create – Create a new, empty repository.

    Synopsis

    svnadmin create REPOS_PATH

    Description

    Create a new, empty repository at the path provided. If the provided directory does not exist, it will be created for you.[59] As of Subversion 1.2, svnadmin creates new repositories with the fsfs filesystem backend by default.

    Options

    --bdb-txn-nosync
    --bdb-log-keep
    --config-dir DIR
    --fs-type TYPE
    

    Examples

    Creating a new repository is just this easy:

    $ svnadmin create /usr/local/svn/repos
    

    In Subversion 1.0, a Berkeley DB repository is always created. In Subversion 1.1, a Berkeley DB repository is the default repository type, but an FSFS repository can be created using the --fs-type option:

    $ svnadmin create /usr/local/svn/repos --fs-type fsfs
    


    [59] Remember, svnadmin works only with local paths, not URLs.
