RE: 'svn commit' fails with PROPPATCH error...

OK, it was just the opposite :). I didn't compile Apache with
--enable-maintainer-mode, so I went back and did that (debug sounded
useful considering this other problem).

I am now using revision 480 (deleted and re 'svnadmin create'd the
database, in case that was important), and am still getting the same
problem. Same message comes out (different GUID on the commit, of
course), and Apache is logging the same message.

*starts thinking about what other information he could give*

I configured Apache with:
   --enable-dav --enable-maintainer-mode
I configured svn with:
   --enable-maintainer-mode --with-axps=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs

My copy of neon was configured and installed by subversion revision 464.
I am having subversion build db "within the Subversion source tree".

What can I do to help shed some light onto this?

Bizarre. Never seen that one :-(

Your Apache was compiled with AP_DEBUG and Subversion was compiled
debug. You'll need to rebuild one of the two. I'd recommend Subversion:


That should allow mod_dav_svn to load again, but I have no idea what's
on with the PROPPATCH problem. After rebuilding, please try again and
back if it keeps happening. We may be able to find out how that could
