Subject RE: upgrade Subversion from version 1.6 to svn, version 1.8.15 (r1718365)
Date Sat, 20 Feb 2016 10:59:09 GMT
Are you sure the directory you tried to upgrade is a 'working copy'? The way
you describe it, it looks like it is a repository.


Subversion 1.9 and 1.8 can just use 1.6 repositories without upgrade. or you
can run 'svnadmin upgrade' on them to enable new features.

Subject: upgrade Subversion from version 1.6 to svn, version 1.8.15



I installed version 1.8.15, copied the working directory from an existing
1.6 version server to this new server.   I su logged in as subvadm, cd to
working directory, cd to one of the working directory ais_repos.   I issued
the command 'svn upgrade', but   I got the error not a working copy root,
file not found error. (please see the following copy and paste).

I am new to the Subversion.  Please advise.
