svn: E170000: Unrecognized URL scheme

If you see this message when trying to svn up:

# svn checkout /usr/src
svn: E170000: Unrecognized URL scheme for ''

then you are missing a subversion compile option. Try this command:

cd /usr/ports/devel/subversion && make config

Then make sure this option is checked:

[X] SERF              WebDAV/Delta-V (HTTP/HTTPS) repo access module

Then recompile subversion with one of these two commands:

portupgrade -f subversion


portmaster subversion
