I need an SVN repo, just local on my PC. What I did was

mkdir ~/svn/MyProject
svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs ~/svn/MyProject
svnserve -d

Under ~/svn/MyProject, there's a conf folder, so I take it that creating the repo was successful.

I would expect the repo to be accessible under svn://127.0.0.1/svn/MyProject but it isn't. Are there other steps that I need to take?

Just to note:

If you starting svnserve without rooting to parent of repo-collection (-r parameter), URL in path-part must contain full path from the root of filesystem to the repo-folder, like

svn://127.0.0.1/home/user/svn/MyProject

Ah, that sounds logical. Thank you! –  Ascorbin Jul 17 '13 at 10:59

Just found out it is reachable under file///home/myUsername/svn/MyProject. Enough if only used locally.
