If you are using a particular SVN distribution take a look at the docs
of that distribution.
If you are building SVN yourself, see [1]: "[...] Subversion 1.9 servers
can read and write to repositories created by earlier versions. To
upgrade an existing server installation, just install the newest
libraries and binaries on top of the older ones."

Don't forget to backup your repositories and server files before the
upgrade though, to be sure that you have a backup at hand, if something
goes wrong.

For your clients it's more or less the same (note that you don't need to
have clients and servers running the same version --- you can also
upgrade the client to 1.9 and keep the server at 1.7.8 or the other way
around). Make sure their working directories are not locked (aka: run
svn cleanup), upgrade the client to 1.9 and then upgrade the working
directories (svn upgrade [2]).
