    Example

    This shows the beginning of loading a repository from a backup file (made, of course, with svnadmin dump):

    $ svnadmin load /usr/local/svn/restored < repos-backup
    <<< Started new txn, based on original revision 1
         * adding path : test … done.
         * adding path : test/a … done.
    …
    

    Or if you want to load into a subdirectory:

    $ svnadmin load --parent-dir new/subdir/for/project /usr/local/svn/restored < repos-backup
    <<< Started new txn, based on original revision 1
         * adding path : test … done.
         * adding path : test/a … done.
    …
