Updating subversion on 64-bit Linux (CentOS/RedHat)

Why the WordPress Administration did not load anymore and a solution

Like many people, I totally dig WordPress as my preferred Blog software (despite it being written in PHP, but that is another story:-) ). The way I have WordPress installed my Linux host is that I get the latest stable releases with subversion directly from wordpress.org. So far, I have…
