Could not find repository error

Running latest version on Windows 10 with latest updates. I have been a long time user of the tool and it suddenly has stopped working.

We use putty and tortoise

TortoiseSVN 1.9.3, Build 27038 - 64 Bit , 2015/12/13 11:53:16
Subversion 1.9.3, -release
apr 1.5.2
apr-util 1.5.4
serf 1.3.8
OpenSSL 1.0.2e 3 Dec 2015
zlib 1.2.8
SQLite 3.9.2

Putty is at 0.66

Using SQL Server 2014 SSMS but also fails in the 2012 and 2016 versions.

I can connect via tortoise and sign in via putty just fine. SQL Source Control is no longer working I get the error message below. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the redgate tool as well.

Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'svn+ssh://mysession/svnroot/bi/trunk/database_schemas/Buffy/Administration'

Any help would be appreciated.


  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting!

    I have followed up with you via email- below is a copy of what I sent over:

    Source Control has never natively supported SSH (I've spoken about it with the devs) so I don't know how you connected to SVN via SSH previously. I would recommend you configure SVN to use HTTPS instead.

    Let me know if you have any issues with that!

    All the Best,
