What version of subversion have I got? It depends. What do you mean?
Servers, clients and working copies all have versions associated with them.
(1) Server version
This question is answered in essentially the same as is (3a), but you’ll need access to the server machine.
Alternatively, if your repository is served by Apache, then type the URL (http://…) into your browser, and the version should be displayed on the page.
(2) Repository version
As with (1), you will need access to the server machine.
Take a look at the following files in your repository directory:
./format ./db/format ./db/fs-type
The following is a table containing some possible values of these files (i.e. their contents). Unfortunately, the table is not complete.
|3||?||?||1.0 – 1.3|
The values in this table are taken from the SVN source files
Note that the two format values above are independent, and the latter is associated only with a file-system type data store (rather than, for example, the database type data store).
(3a) Client version (command line SVN)
To find out what client you’re running, simply type
at the command line.
(3b) Client version (TortoiseSVN)
Simply look at
TortoiseSVN | about
from the context menu. Note that there’s both the version of TortoiseSVN itself, and the version of Subversion that it’s built against.
(4) Working copy version
Take a look at the following file(s) in (the hidden subdirectory <.svn> of) your repository directory:
The following is a table containing some possible values of this file (i.e. its contents). Unfortunately, the table is not complete.
|4||1.0 – 1.3|
The values in this table are taken from the SVN source file
If you want to know which version of a particular file you have, then relevant information is given with the following selection of commands.
What revision of a file do I have? And, have I changed the file?
svn st file-path svn st -v file-path svn status --verbose file-path
Is a file out of date; that is, has someone else change it in the repository?
svn st -u file-path svn st -uv file-path svn status --show-updates --verbose file-path
Get some general information on a file:
svn info file-path
Alternatively, an overview may be obtained with
svnversion svnversion directory-path
