Hi there :)
Below is my info:
Operating system: Windows 7 Ultimate x86
The Fatal Bug I've Found:
When I've setup Apache 2.2.21 with SVN v1.7.0, Apache and SVN works fine, except one thing:
When I request an XML file using HTTP POST, Apache gives me HTTP 500 Internal Error
Here is the access.log
::1 - - [24/Oct/2011:23:54:17 +0800] "POST /data/VideoMenuBar.xml HTTP/1.1" 500 537
Note that this bug happens every time and affecting all XML file requests using HTTP POST!
And later I tested Apache 2.2.21 with SVN v1.7.1, it got the same bug
After many testings I finally locate the problem:
mod_dav_svn.so (from Subversion v1.7.0 and v1.7.1 windows binary)
Why am I so positive about this?
'cuz when I remove this line from httpd.conf:
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
and restart Apache Service, I can request any XML file using HTTP POST or GET with no problems!
Later I've tested Apache 2.2.21 + SVN 1.6.17, it does not have this bug
Which meansmod_dav_svn.so from Subversion v1.6.17 works perfectly
I'm from China, thanks for bearing with my bad English, I wish you get the point and fix this bug asap.
Keep going on your great work!
