For http://

In the 1.9 build directory first run 1.9

  APACHE_MPM=event .../subversion/tests/cmdline/ --no-tests

which creates an apache configuration in:


and starts a server.  Kill the server either with ps/kill or:

  /usr/sbin/apache2 -f `pwd`/subversion/tests/cmdline/httpd-2018*/cfg -k stop

Now edit the apache configuration file:

  vi subversion/tests/cmdline/httpd-2018-xxxxxxx/cfg

and change the paths for the mod_dav_svn, mod_authz_svn and
mod_dontdothat modules to refer to your 1.10 build.  Start the server:

  /usr/sbin/apache2 -f `pwd`/subversion/tests/cmdline/httpd-2018*/cfg -k start

and run the 1.9 tests:

  make check CLEANUP=1 PARALLEL=1 BASE_URL=http://localhost:3691

To verify that apache is really using the 1.10 libraries use ps to get
the ID of one of the apache processes and then run:

   grep libsvn /proc/NNN/maps

For svn://

In the 1.10 build directory run:

  subversion/svnserve/svnserve -Tdr .../1.9-build/subversion/tests/cmdline

then in the 1.9 build directory run:

  make check CLEANUP=1 PARALLEL=1 BASE_URL=svn://localhost

Running the 1.10 tests against a 1.9 apache/svnserve is much the same
except that you need to specify SERVER_MINOR_VERSION when invoking make
