Keeping up-to-date with software updates can be a time-consuming chore, but upgrading to new releases of Apache Subversion needn’t be stressful. uberSVN, the free, open ALM platform for Subversion users comes with an innovative ‘SVN Switch’ feature that allows administrators to upgrade SVN binaries with a simple mouse click and a service restart.
In this post, we’ll show you how to upgrade to Apache Subversion 1.7.6 in uberSVN, in five easy steps.
1) In your uberSVN installation, open the ‘Administration’ tab followed by the ‘SVN Switch’ tab.
2) On the ‘SVN Switch’ screen, select the ‘Subversion 1.7.6’ option.
3) Click ‘Apply.’
4) uberSVN will begin the process of changing the Subversion binaries. Note, this may take a few minutes to complete.
5) Once the binaries have been changed, uberSVN will automatically log you out. Re-enter your login details.
You’ve now successfully upgraded to Apache Subversion 1.7.6!
