MKCOL of .... 405 Method Not Allowed

I have recently installed svn 0.18.0 server on Linux, and client only on
Windows (XP).

I have created a repository using file:/// URLs, and I now want to import
files from windows into the repository. I'm attempting to do this via
apache (2.0.44) running on a linux box.

When I try the import, I get an error, 405 Method Not Allowed.

Here's a sample of the command and response:

C:\dev\subversion_prep\bdssrc\staging>svn import
http://bulin/svn/bds/source_repository . --message "Initial embedded code
import" --username richardc
richardc's password: *
svn: RA layer request failed
svn: MKCOL of
nk: 405 Method Not Allowed

I have read through the FAQ, and understood the permissions issues. I'm
99.99999% sure it is not a permissions problem. I've tried giving write
permissions to all on every file and directory in the repository, and also
changed ownership of all files to the same user/group as apache is running
under. None of this made a difference.

I noticed another mail to this list that described a problem very similar to
the problem I'm having:


However, nobody has helped this guy out yet. Just like the mail above, I
get no error message in the apache logs, and I'm not running via a proxy.

I have ethereal installed, and I have saved a dump of the interaction
between the windows box and the apache box. If anyone wants this, please

Does anyone have anything that might help me resolve this issue?
