Hi there, is it possible to upgrade subversion on my account? Currently 1.6.11 is installed (web25) - and my local version is 1.7.10. This won't talk to the server version!

Many thanks,

Stephen

You can't upgrade the system installation of Subversion on your shared server. If you need a newer version of Subversion on the server, then you'll need to build it from source (and probably Apache also) and run it as a custom application.

That said, svn 1.7 should be able to talk to 1.6 on the server. I think the only issue is that your local working copies need to be upgraded to 1.7's new format. Try doing that, or make a completely new working copy.

Hope that helps!
