[svn] How to delete an SVN project from SVN repository

Can anyone please suggest me how to delete complete SVN project from SVN repository (svn repository is in linux). I found "svn delete", but don't think it does the same. It only helps in removing files or sub-folders but not the entire project.

do read the comments attached to this post and make sure this is what you are after

'svn delete' works against repository content, not against the repository itself. for doing repository maintenance (like completely deleting one) you should use svnadmin. However, there's a reason why svnadmin doesn't have a 'delete' subcommand. You can just

rm -rf $REPOS_PATH

on the svn server,

where $REPOS_PATH is the path you used to create your repository with

svnadmin create $REPOS_PATH
