I found some instructions from J. Taylor on how to install SVN on Bluehost, but they were a bit out-dated. For one, Subversion is now an Apache project and isn’t found on anymore. You can find the project on Other than that, the instructions are great!

mkdir src
cd src
tar -xvjpf  subversion-1.6.15.tar.bz2
tar -xvjpf  subversion-deps-1.6.15.tar.bz2
cd subversion-1.6.15
./configure --prefix=$HOME --without-berkeley-db --with-ssl LDFLAGS="-L/lib64"
make install

Note: I did get one error during the make install process, but it didn’t seem to matter. SVN works great for me.
