Thank you Christian for quick reply. Please see my answers below.

Yes, a valid SVN repository was created and used on 1.5.5 version.
But I revisited it's configuration based on your suggestion above.
When I tied to save the configuration, facing the error "Unable to
create directory /var/www/,
which is needed for the Subversion configuration. Create this
directory and set the web server's user as the the owner."

> Did you run 'rb-site upgrade' and restart your web server?
I am just site admin. Our server admin surely ran the 'rb-site
upgrade'. I will ask our server admin whether he restarted the server.
Below are steps followed to upgrade.
1. Backed up MySQL with mysqldump
2. Backed up /var, /opt/memcache and /etc using tar.
3. root@wolf.62> easy_install -f
-U ReviewBoard
4. root@wolf.64> rb-site upgrade /var/www/
5. root@wolf.65> service httpd restart
6. root@wolf.70> service memcached stop
7. root@wolf.71> service memcached start

It seems a logs directory needs to be created for this. I will get it
done and update you back.

The web UI is actually creating a review request with graphics only
option. Then it is allowing to add file of any type. We can open these
added files by clicking the link provided in the review request. But
we cannot comment on this.
May be this will be fixed if we add a valid repository.
