How can I change my account domain or repo url?

It is possible to change the sub-domain in your account. To change the domain, login as the Account Owner and go to Account > Account Settings. From there, you will find an option to edit your sub-domain.

It is also possible to change a repository URL. Login as an account owner or admin, then go to the repository and Settings. You will see an option to change the url.

Before you change the name, please keep in mind:

  • The old subdomain/url will no longer work and will not be available for someone else to use.
  • Once the URL is changed, you must do a fresh checkout or relocate all Subversion/Git repositories.

How to relocate a working copy url:

You can relocate your Subversion repository by running the "svn switch --relocate" at the command line (or Terminal). Make sure you are in the root directory of the repository. Here is an example:

svn switch --relocate https://olddomain.svn.beanstalkapp.com/oldrepo https://newdomain.svn.beanstalkapp.com/newrepo<br>

If you use TortoiseSVN, see this article for instructions.

In case you need to change the url for your Git repository, you can do this by going to the root of your working copy, then you need to go to .git folder (please note that this folder is hidden), and modify remotes in your config file.

Here is an example of the remote for one Git repository. Keep in mind you could have more than one remotes in your .config file.
