As long as you do the upgrade properly, there should be no trouble.
Since you're using 1.1.4, you're probably running BDB - FSFS became
the default in 1.2, and this is a good opportunity to make that
switch.

1) Shut down the server process (svnserve or Apache)
2) svnadmin dump the repository contents
3) Upgrade SVN to 1.5.x. Make sure you remove all traces of 1.1.4.
4) Create a new repository directory (move/rename the old one)
5) svnadmin load the dumpfile into it.
6) Start up the server.

The fine manual as good instructions too.
