SVN - Archive trunk to branches and start new trunk
This explains how to archive the current project in trunk - move to branches
-> then start a new trunk using SVN
# 1 > Choose the destination
Choose the NEW destination
In this case you CLICK on branches
-> But add a new folder with the date
This means you will be moving your trunk to 'branches' / '2019-02-12....'
-> this keeps your branches orgnaized with the date
# 2 > Refresh
Now in the SVN window, click 'refresh' and you will now see the folders which were moved around
# 3 > Create NEW trunk
Now that we have moved all our SVN history to a branch we can now COPY the same folder we just moved BACK to trunk
Right click on the folder you just created and choose 'Branch or Tag'
# 4 > Base folder
Click on the project folder (NOT branches) but up one level from branches
-> And below type with your keyboard 'trunk'
-> Add a commit message
# 6 > LOCAL files
As a general rule I always ensure I do not delete anything until I have worked on the new system for a few days.
so on your LOCAL files rename your TRUNK to 'delete-me'
-> This means you will keep all your local files but they will not interfere with the new system you are setting up
# 9 > Set correct path
Set the correct path, so your ONLINE svn repo matches your local file structure
