svnadmin create — Create a new, empty repository.


svnadmin 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.[50] As of Subversion 1.2, svnadmin creates new repositories with the fsfs filesystem backend by default.


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


Creating a new repository is just this easy:

$ svnadmin 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 option:

$ svnadmin create /usr/local/svn/repos --fs-type fsfs

[50] Remember, svnadmin works only with local paths, not URLs.
