User created SVN repo with bad character in name - what to do ?

SVN user created a bad name for a new repository he made using "_" in the name of the repo.
Since the creation of the repo, the server refuses to provide access to web pannels, including server-manager.

SME server 7.6
latest subversion contrib
Code: [Select]
service httpd-e-smith status
down: /service/httpd-e-smith: 1s, want up
Trying to access server manager through console gives
Connection refused

Any help would be very apriciated.

First off all, please report this as a bug in the bugtracker as this should not happen.

Log in as root and remove the repository from the accounts database manally like this:

Code: [Select]
db accounts delprop repositoryname
After that, regenerate the webserver configuration file and you should be fine:

Code: [Select]
expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
