You have to use "cvs update -dP" on your server sandbox to create new
directories and delete empty one in a workign directory.

For your other problem I don't know sorry :)



I've recently started using CVS to help manage a programming
project that I, and I alone, am working on, at least for
now. I'm having a problem and couldn't find a solution in the
docs or in the archives.

My setup is that I have my CVS repository on my working server,
and then a sandbox on my working server from which a build
script puts things where they're supposed to go. Then on my
development server, I again have a sandbox and a build script.
I've been working by making changes in the sandbox on the dev
sever, and when they're ready, committing them to the repository,
updating the working server's sandbox, and building it out.

There was a point at which I was making a lot of changes to my
dev sandbox, but didn't have access to the repository so
couldn't commit anything. When I got back to it, I found that
I couldn't get some things to match up.

The basic problem is that I had taken a specific program, and
directory, called and Book/ and then generalized it
and renamed them to and MyDatabase/ . In my dev
sandbox, I have this directory called MyDatabase/ and there
are a bunch of programs underneath it that used to be in Book/ .
But I can't seem to get this directory onto the working
server. When I go to the working sandbox and type "cvs
update", it doesn't create MyDirectory/ or anything underneath
it; it's the same when I deleted the entire sandbox and did a
"cvs checkout" from scratch.

Yet in the development sandbox, it certainly thinks it's there--
when I type "cvs add MyDatabase/" or "cvs add [any of the programs
under MyDatabase/]" I get messages like "there is a version
in MyDatabase already" or " already exists, with
version number 1.3".

What do I need to do to get these files out of CVS and into
the sandbox on the working server?

Thanks very much. Sorry if I'm missing something obvious.
