Subject Re: ... is already a working copy for a different url
Date Fri, 02 Feb 2018 18:28:09 GMT
You might be looking for the relocate command, execute it on the current
working copy and tell it which server folder it should be:

svn info .
Shows the current server url, might be wise to check if that is what you
think it is

I don't know how to do this in your client
