WebDAV proxy 405 error

From: Mark Horsburgh <mkh_at_progress.com>
Date: 2007-07-05 20:18:30 CEST

I'm currently experimenting with the new WebDAV proxy functionality
because we are extremely keen on using it to support our development team
split across the Atlantic. However, I've been unable to get it to work.

I have two test machines, both running Redhat Enterprise 3, master and
slave. Master has Apache 2.2.4 with Subversion 1.4.4 on it. Slave has
Apache 2.2.4 and Subversion /trunk@25655. The slave has a mirror
repository created with svnsync from the master. Both have the repository
configured to be served out of the /dev location and I can do this with a
client configured to use Neon:

$ svn co http://master/dev/trunk
Checked out revision 1.

However, if I do this:

$ svn co http://slave/dev/trunk
svn: REPORT request failed on '/dev/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: Server sent unexpected return value (405 Method Not Allowed) in
response to REPORT request for '/dev/!svn/vcc/default'

The slave's relevant configuration is:

<Location /dev>
        DAV svn
        SVNPath /svn/mirror
        SVNMasterURI http://master/dev
</Location>

The Apache access log shows:

I don't see anything obviously out of place in either of these apart from
the 405 error. If I comment out the SVNMasterURI line from the slave
configuration then I can check out just fine.

Can anyone shed any light on what is going on here? I'm quite happy to
provide Ethereal traces or whatever in order to ensure this functionality
works correctly in Subversion 1.5.

Kind Regards,
Mark
