Installing Livejournal: location of files and importance of Subversion

I wish to install Livejournal for my website. I tried my best, but I could not find a page or location from where I can download the LJ installation files. My sites are hosted at IXwebhosting.com, and they told me that my account has Perl(v5.8.8), MySQL - 5.0.41, apache-1.3.37, mod_perl 1.29, but no Subversion. So, here are my questions:

1. From where do I download the files needed to install Livejournal for my website? Will I be able to install them through FTP?  

2. How important or compulsory is it to have Subversion for installation and maintenance of Livejournal? Will it be possible to get updates and keep the software up-to-date without Subversion?
