RE: upgrade Subversion from version 1.6 to svn, version 1.8.15 (r1718365)

Are you sure the directory you tried to upgrade is a 'working copy'? The way
you describe it, it looks like it is a repository.

 

Subversion 1.9 and 1.8 can just use 1.6 repositories without upgrade. or you
can run 'svnadmin upgrade' on them to enable new features.

(r1718365)

 

Hi,

I installed version 1.8.15, copied the working directory from an existing
1.6 version server to this new server. I su logged in as subvadm, cd to
working directory, cd to one of the working directory ais_repos. I issued
the command 'svn upgrade', but I got the error not a working copy root,
file not found error. (please see the following copy and paste).

I am new to the Subversion. Please advise.

Thanks,

Margaret Hom
