RE: Hod to I upgrade safely?

What sort of problems did you have? You shouldn't have any. You should
just be able to install both, and reboot (for Tortoise). Note that
TortoiseSVN has its own "built in" SVN libraries, so it's not tied to
what other version of the command line tools you have. Of course, a 1.5
client cannot use a 1.6 working copy once a 1.6 client has touched it.
The _repository_ isn't upgraded unless you explicitly do so.

Subject: Hod to I upgrade safely?

I am currently using subversion 1.5.6 with Tortoise 1.5.9. All of the
files are in one repository file:///C:/svn_repository/

I want to update my system to svn/Tortoise 1.6.3 but I am a bit worried
about the fact that my files will all be upgraded to 1.6 automatically
and then everything will be screwed up.

So, do I upgrade SVN first, reboot and then upgrade Tortoise? If not
then what is the best way to do this?

I have taken backups of my repository and all of my project folders.

The reason I am hesitant is I did an upgrade some time ago and it took
ages to sort out the mess afterwards as I didn't do it in the right
