svnadmin dump || hotcopy : Program version matching error
Date: Thu, 15 Oct 2009 17:06:11 +0200 (CEST)
I am starting to administrate a series of svn repositories, and face
--- Problem report --- Running: % sudo svn dump /path/to/my/repository or % sudo svn hotcopy /path/to/my/repository I get the (usual?) error: svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem cordisoff/db: Argument invalide svn: bdb: Program version 4.2 doesn't match environment version A weird (?) thing is the fact that everything runs smooth (eg : svn co, svn up, svn commit, svnadmin create, etc.) appart these commands... This may be strange, since the problem report I read on the Net explain that most svn commands are broken when having a berkeley DB version problem... --- Remark... --- I do know that this error is quite common. But I did not find an appropriate HOWTO for a svn administror newbee like myself :( Sorry for that. --- Config --- Here are some details on my config : svn version 1.1.4 (quite old indeed !) db schema format of my repositories 3 berkeleydb version (eg db4.2_archive) 4.2 The db format of my repository is 3 Here we go. --- Question 1 --- Since svnadmin dump||hotcopy do not work, What should I do to secure this important repository before I change anything on it, or before I upgrade anything in svn ? Is copying (cp -r) the repository sufficient in such a case ? --- Question 2) --- The problem should be related to the DB schema version of my repository, as compared to the schema version of the svn binary (or berkeley db binary). A weird thing, here, is that the server has NOT been upgraded since the repository has been created (at least for one of them). Do you see an explenation to this ? --- Question 3) --- Apprently I should "upgrade my repository", as explained in various places, eg http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/notes/repos_upgrade_HOWTO Is that correct ? The upgrade process requires using an old binary of svnadmin with the same schema version as my repository (3 in my case). Well OK. But how can I know which svn version is OK for this ? And how may I get it and install it ? I thank you much for your answers. And sorry for this (not new) question...
