Subversion 1.8 on CentOS 6

Stanislav KhromovStanislav Khromov

If you’re using CentOS 6 you are stuck with SVN 1.6. This is mostly annoying because SVN 1.6 creates a bunch of .svn folders. (One for every subdirectory in all your repositories.)

To upgrade we can use the WANdisco SVN repository and get Subversion 1.8

Let’s do it!

wget https://snippets.khromov.se/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/svninstall.sh_.txt
mv svninstall.sh_.txt svninstall.sh
chmod a+X svninstall.sh
sh svninstall.sh

That’s it!

    Alternatively you can set up

    /etc/yum.repos.d/WANdisco-1.8.repo with

    [WANdisco]
    name=WANdisco SVN Repo 1.8
    enabled=1
    baseurl=http://opensource.wandisco.com/rhel/6/svn-1.8/RPMS/
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-WANdisco

    and just do ‘yum upgrade’
