Subject RE: Subversion version 1.6.11 (r934486) package
Date Fri, 22 Sep 2017 17:46:27 GMT
Hi Eric,
Thank you very much for your advice. I will setup svn 1.9.7 on centos7 then follow your instruction
to migrate the existing svn 1.6.11 to the new server.

Many thanks again!

Hi Fei,

On Fri, Sep 22, 2017 at 9:16 AM, Fei Peng <<>>
Can you please tell me where I can get Subversion version 1.6.11 (r934486) package? I need
to setup a 1.6.11 server on centos7, then migrate our current svn 1.6.11 on centos5.6 to the
1.6.11 server on centos7. Then upgrade the svn 1.6.11 server on centos7 to the current version

The recommended upgrade path would probably be different than what you describe. Do an svnadmin
dump on your current server, and import on your new server, with whatever version of Subversion
you're running there. If you cannot take any down time, do the dump & load, then set up
svnsync to catch up and keep the two servers in sync. When you're ready to switch over, you
stop new commits to the existing server, make sure the sync operations finish, then deactivate
the syncing and turn your new server liver. Maybe a minute of total down time.

I am not sure if I can install svn 1.9.7 on centos7 and migrate my svn 1.6.1 directly to the
1.9.7 on centos7.

I believe so, if you follow the approach I outlined above. Caveat - I don't run CentOS.


Any advice will be highly appreciated and thank you in advance!
