Subversion – ‘No repository found’ error

I was getting a “No repository found in” error which was a result of starting up subversion wrong. Even if you’re in the directory where svn resides you need to call the “-r” option on “svnserve”

svnserve -d -r svn

Another problem I ran into was that my user needed permission to change the files from Ubuntu. To aleviate that run:

sudo chown -R user home-directory/
