svk admin create — Create a new, empty repository.


svk admin create REPOS_PATH


Create a new, empty repository at the path provided. If the provided directory does not exist, it will be created for you.[22] As of Subversion 1.2, svk admin creates new repositories with the fsfs filesystem backend by default.


--config-dir DIR
--fs-type TYPE


Creating a new repository is just this easy:

$ svk admin 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 switch:

$ svk admin create /usr/local/svn/repos --fs-type fsfs

[22] Remember, svk admin works only with local paths, not URLs.
