Re: Upgrade SVN server 1.3.2 to 1.6 with Apache

Thanks for the response. I'm using Apache 2.2.2 so that shouldn't be a problem.

Still not sure about the modules. From what I can tell the SVN
binaries don't come up with Apache modules. Maybe the ones that come
with 2.2.2 will work fine with SVN 1.6.

The svn docu seems to indicate that I don't have to do the svndump and
re-import thing when upgrading to 1.6. I'll of course back up the
repositories regardless. Apparently the repositories don't get
upgraded automatically on upgrade and you have to use "svnadmin
upgrade" to manually upgrade the repositories to a 1.6 format.
