Installing Subversion

It’s best to upgrade to Apache 2.2 with the DAV module enabled, but you may be able to get away with Apache 1.3 with DAV.

cd /usr/src
wget http://www.webdav.org/neon/neon-0.25.5.tar.gz
tar -xvzf neon-0.25.5.tar.gz
cd neon-0.25.5
./configure && make && make install
cd ../
mv neon-0.25.5 neon

After the installation, download the subversion sources from here:

http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ProjectDocumentList?folderID=260&expandFolder=74
Untar the archive into a temp directory like /usr/src and enter into the resulting folder. The run these commands to configure and install:

./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs \
 --with-apr=/usr/local/apache \
 --with-apr-util=/usr/local/apache \
 --with-ssl --enable-dso
make && make install

Verify that the installation was successfully by running svn –version
