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]).
