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!

mv svninstall.sh_.txt
chmod a+X

That’s it!

    Alternatively you can set up

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

    name=WANdisco SVN Repo 1.8

    and just do ‘yum upgrade’
