These all time i was using Rsync to take the backup of my Repository. Its a bad idea to use rsync  to take subversion backup. The best way to use svnadmin dump command. This command Dump the contents of the repository, bounded by a given set of revisions, using a portable dump format.

svnadmin dump /home/QkRepo > /home/Qkr.dump ;scp -rp /home/Qkr.dump root@

Thats all, the above command will dump the entire repo to /home and the scp command take that dump file and transfet it to server. You can schedule a cron job for this backup.

Thats all …
