What does the apache error_log say? 500 is pretty vague, but the
error_log should say more.

Also, is this section of the INSTALL document relevant? (Maybe you
changed your httpd.conf somehow since you were last able to do an 'svn
cp URL URL'?)

      In order for 'svn cp' to work (which is actually implemented as a
      DAV COPY command), mod_dav needs to be able to be able to determine
      the hostname of the server. A standard way of doing this is to use
      Apache's ServerName directive to set the server's hostname. Edit
      your /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf to include:

      ServerName svn.myserver.org

      If you are using virtual hosting through Apache's NameVirtualHost
      directive, you may need to use the ServerAlias directive to specify
      additional names that your server is known by.
