Re: Snow Leopard 10.6.7 showing wrong version on http://myserver/svn page

I used the .dmg installer on both the client Macs and the server Mac.
The .dmg is advertised to come with "everything" needed for both.

Yea, the Mac OSX Server GUI is why I decided to go with putting the
repository on the server.

As you asked, I would like to upgrade the server to 1.6.17. I've seen
literature on-line about manual configurations.
Is configuring the server the same as configuring the client version as you
laid out below?
Also there were other modules that needed to be flipped on through the GUI,
as per directions found on the internet.
Would I need to worry about those?

Much appreciated,
