You can use a feature called reverse merge.

First make sure your working copy has no pending changes. -> revert 
everything or check out a new copy

If you want to go back to revision 497 use:

|svn merge -r HEAD:497 .|

you can now commit to " sort of reset" the server to the same code as in 
version 497, or make more edits before you commit.
