Thanks to WANdisco, which is maintaining the rpm packages for latest Subversion version. This article will help you to install subversion 1.9 ( svn client ) on CentOS/RHEL 7/6/5 Systems. If you want to configure Subversion server visit this article.
Step 1 – Setup Yum Repository
Firstly we need to configure yum repository on our system. Create a new repo file /etc/yum.repos.d/wandisco-svn.repo and add following content as per your operating system version.
[WandiscoSVN] name=Wandisco SVN Repo baseurl=http://opensource.wandisco.com/centos/$releasever/svn-1.9/RPMS/$basearch/ enabled=1 gpgcheck=0
Step 2 – Install Subversion 1.9
Before installing latest package remove existing subversion packages from system to remove the conflict.
yum remove subversion*
Now install latest available Subversion package using yum command line package manager utility.
yum clean all yum install subversion
Step 3 – Verify Subversion Version
At this stage, you have successfully install Subversion client on your system. Let’s use the following command to verify the version of svn client.
svn --versionsvn, version 1.9.7 (r1800392) compiled Aug 10 2017, 21:36:06 on x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu Copyright (C) 2017 The Apache Software Foundation.

For Amazon Linux 2 anyway, before attempting this, you need to temporarily set enabled = 0 in:
Remember to set it back as soon as you’re done!
Similar to Duncan’s post, I had to replace with:
The URL given includes a $releasever part, that resolves on newer Redhat installs to 7workstation and 6server etc, whilst the WandiscoSVN server is only using the 7 or the 6.
One of the configured repositories failed (Wandisco SVN Repo),
and yum doesn’t have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only
safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work “fix” this:
And the two options are not going to help me get the 1.9 version.
To actually install it you need to disable other repos, and install svn with this command:
yum –disablerepo=”*” –enablerepo=”WandiscoSVN” install subversion
