  • Svn Migration from 1.7 to 1.10

    Hi all,

    we want to migrate subversion from 1.7 to 1.10.
    On server side, we have the version 1.7.6.
    On clients side, 1.7.9.

    What is the best procedure to follow?
    - Backup svn on server side.
    - Migrate all clients first, upgrade the local working copies.
    - Finally migrate the server.

    Is there any risk to migrate the server directly from 1.7 to 1.10?

    Many thanks in advance for your answer,

    You can migrate the clients asynchronous to the server(s). No risk that I know of migrating directly from 1.7 to 1.10.

    If you're moving from 1.7 to 1.10 then I'd suggest a "dump/load" migration for your repositories in order to get the best performance out of 1.10 on the servers.

    This is easiest, fastest, and requires minimal disk space if you have the "old" server and the "new" server up at the same time.
    That way you can (iterate over your repos):

    newServer: svnadmin create /path/to/repo01

    oldServer: svnadmin dump /path/to/repo01 | ssh svn@newserver svnadmin load -M 2048 /path/to/repo01

    When you're through, you probably want to do an "svnadmin pack" immediately. Then in the future again occasionally.
