Arthur- I have gone ahead and renamed my repository directory, and created the alias, as you recommended. The alias is now /websites. I can check out the files with no problem. But when I go to commit them back in, using the same command you did in your e-mail to me, I get this interesting error: cvs server: could not find parsed rcsfile stock.aspx cvs server: could not find parsed rcsfile stock.aspx.vb cvs commit: saving log message in C:\Users\Andy\AppData\Local\Temp\cvs4FB7.tmp cvs [commit aborted]: cvs [server aborted]: Repository directory c:/CVSROOT/clientwebsite does not exist: No such file or directory [Note: the actual name of the directory was changed to "clientwebsite" for security/client privacy] So clearly, CVS is trying to commit the files back to the repository using the old connection string, from last week before I renamed it under your and Bo's guidance. And, of course, it is failing, because that directory no longer exists under that name. So somehow the change didn't "take", I guess. This is odd. The Checkout happened just fine, with or without specifying the CVSROOT, and the CVSROOT environment variable is correct. I *did* re-start the server after the name change/alias. Is there somewhere else that the CVSNT server holds on to the repository information, where I could edit it and correct it? Thanks, -Andrew
