Ubuntu Subversion: How to Delete a SVN Repository CodeUnit 27 JUL 2010

Although there is tons of documentation on creating new SVN project repositories for your shiny Ubuntu SVN (subversion) server, there isn’t all that much mention of how you actually remove a project repository should you no longer need it.

Funnily enough, that’s probably because the answer to this question is particularly easy.

Simply delete the desired project folder from your repository root and you are done.

    for example when i do list i get:
    svn list -v svn+ssh://subversion@
    subversion@‘s password:
    1 subversi Mar 20 12:36 ./
    1 subversi 39 Mar 20 12:36 access-logs
    1 subversi Mar 20 12:36 etc/
    1 subversi Mar 20 12:36 mail/
    1 subversi Mar 20 12:36 public_ftp/
    1 subversi Mar 20 12:36 public_html/
    1 subversi Mar 20 12:36 tmp/
    1 subversi 16 Mar 20 12:36 www

    -> i want to remove everything inside /repos/ folder (on svn)
