Database upgrade problem

Hi there,

I'm new to the list (and relatively new to Subversion administration) so
please be gentle!

I help run a small company, and a bit over a year ago I set up SVN for my
development team on a Fedora based server in the office. At the time I set
up nightly backups of the data, and tested that I could load from these
backups, with no problems.

Unfortunately last week our office was broken into, and one of the things
taken was the server. I also do offsite backups, so I thought it was an
inconvenience, but no real problem as I in theory was only losing one day's
work. So, I rebuilt a server (this time using Debian), and installed SVN,
got it all working with Apache, then tried to install from the backup...
Here I encountered problems. Some searching has taught me that it is likely
that the database (bdb) used within my backed up repositories is
incompatible with the latest version of SVN, and that I should install the
old version of bdb/svn and do a dump of the data. This would be all well and
good if I knew what version I was running previously... Is there a way of
finding out the relevant information from the repository itself? Is this
likely to be my problem? I have tried using db4.2_upgrade, to no effect
("db_recover: Program version 4.2 doesn't match environment version").

Any help on this would be very greatly appreciated. If I have forgotten any
required information just let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Greg
