Please don't You'll *really* hurt yourself having to support that.
CentOS 7 has 1.7.x as its default Subversion. If you need Subversion
1.9, it's in the "SCLO" repository, such as the copy at

That published version is 1.9.3, but it actually has some upstream
support at RedHat. I've done personal builds, and used to publish to
RPMforge, and it's not worth the work.

Yes, you can. Definitely look into setting up an "svnmirror", to
establish a new Subversion on your CentOS 7.x box slaved to the old
one, and look at "svnadmin hotcopy" on the old server to get a copy of
hte configs with your local tuning. We've discussed this before for
people planning upgrades, and even discussed it in the lst week.

When you're happy with the new mirror, *write lock* the old one, and
help your users set their repositories to point to the new server.
It's usually easier and safer if they actually check out new working
copies, but not everyone is willing to do that.
