Thanks for the quick help. The directory /usr/local/svn is a
repository (created by running the "svnadmin create /usr/local/svn"
command). I changed SVNParentPath to read SVNPath in the httpd.conf
file, but still no luck. :(
I've imported an initial layout for the repository as follows:
myserver# svn import . file:///path/to/repos --message 'Initial
Committed revision 1.
On checking-out projectA using the string
"http://myserver:8000/projectA" (I even tried
http://myserver:8000/svn/projectA), I got a similar message again. Am I

Is /usr/local/svn a repository (that is, did you run "svnadmin
create /usr/local/svn"), or is it a directory which contains several
repositories (that is, "mkdir /usr/local/svn; svnadmin create /usr/
