Yes, I am on Windows.
I installed Apache Subversion (Setup-Subversion-1.6.15.msi). No previous
versions installed.
You mentioned that I need to stop apache server. How do I know if it's
You mentioned that we need to copy mod_*.so files to the apache modules
folder. Was I supposed to have an apache folder anywhere (where?). Was I
supposed to install apache separately? Or it's included in Python somewhere?
I copied svn and libsvn folders to C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages.
What did you mean by "copied all libsvn\_*.dll files to _*.pyd"? Move all
the dll files from under libsvn to one folder up and modify the extension to

I appreciate any input. Thank you,

As you mention alagazam, I will assume you are on windows...  However,
why are you installing 1.6.13 when 1.6.15 is available?

I asked almost this question a while back (on the Trac Users mailing
list) and did not really get an answer.  However, some searching of both
svn and Trac documentation lead me to write the following notes for
myself which is what I now follow.  Let me know if this works for you
too (obviously you can ignore the first two steps)...

Upgrading the Python Bindings for Subversion:

Just to complete this thread with the hope of being useful to someone
this is what I did to install the latest svn from Algazam onto windoze:

~ stopped the apache service

~ uninstalled all previous subversion instances (tidying up really)

~ ran the Algazam windows .msi installer

~ copied the latest mod_*.so files from the install location to the 
  apache modules directory (overwriting the old ones)

~ deleted the old svn and libsvn directories from

~ opened the python bindings .zip and copied the two directories
  to site-packages

~ copied all libsvn\_*.dll files to _*.pyd [1]

~ restarted the server and crossed fingers...

[1] I found this recommended in the t.e.o wiki at TracSubversion...

In other words, it was fine to just delete the old files from
and copy the new ones in there, with just a bit of fiddling about!
