Ok, in some more details:

You have a cvsroot directory, in your example, the local one is

In that directory, you have a CVSROOT directory. In your example, this
is the ~/cvsroot/CVSROOT/ directory.

This CVSROOT directory contains some information about your repository
(for example, your modules file). If you happen to overwrite the modules
file in the "server" CVS, then the modules there would be lost (or, to
say it better, you would have to restore the file to be able to access
them like before).

Of course, I do not know if you ever changed anything in your
~/cvsroot/CVSROOT/ directory. If you did not, just move every ,v file to
the server, leaving out all files in ~/cvsroot/CVSROOT/. Make sure you
do not overwrite other files if they happen to already exist on the
server! (directories with the same name, for example).

If you made any changes to your ~/cvsroot/CVSROOT/ directory, I would
suggest you should try to find out what you changed exactly, and put
these changes in the server's CVSROOT by hand after thinking about what
you need and what you do not need (or, what might break things on the
