How to move SVN repository to other server.

On old SVN Server side:

# svnadmin dump your_repository_dir > repo.dmp

* This will take more than minutes.

On new SVN Server side:

# svnadmin create repo
# svnadmin load repo < repo.dmp

Note that taking a dump of repository does NOT dump the configuration files in repository.
So make you copy the conf directory.
