RE: Repository locks up frequently

Thanks for the reply Ben, but it seems that we are already doing what those
FAQs suggest.

We only access the repository through apache, which runs as its own user
(http-zzz).

Through testing, we have worked out that:

* If two different IP addresses simultaneously access the repository (through
apache) there is no problem.

* If two different IP addresses simultaneously access the intranet site there
is no problem.

* If two different IP addresses simultaneously access the repository and a
separate intranet site that is also served up by that same instance of apache
through a different port, the process accessing the repository hangs, and the
repository locks up.

I have checked the permissions of all the files in the "locked" repository,
and found that the whole thing is still owned by the apache user, http-zzz.

We plan to fix the problem by setting up a dedicated instance of apache to
serve the repository, but this seems unnecessary.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Rob Mules
