Re: Unable to Commit to Apache SVN Server on Windows

From: Simon Perkins <sy_at_perkins.net>

I don't think that's the problem... The section from the httpd.conf file
reads:

<Location /svn>
DAV svn
SVNListParentPath on
SVNParentPath I:\Subversion
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Subversion repositories"
AuthUserFile passwd
#AuthzSVNAccessFile svnaccessfile
Require valid-user
</Location>

Does it make any difference what the actual directory where the
repository lives is called?

I can checkout and browse the repository on the web server no problem, BTW.

Cheers,

Sy
