I'm hoping that you didn't do all of this when:

   mv /var/svn /tmp/svn-repos
   mkdir /var/svn
   mv /tmp/svn-repos /var/svn/admin

would have done the trick. :-)

Well, it looks like your have a "Require valid-user" or something in
your <Location> tags, but that your AuthFile parameter there is
pointing to a non-existing file.
