From a search of the list archive I understood that svnserve would
not run correctly so far. Dunno if srvany was also mentioned, but
XNET and Firedaemon were.

I set up basic Apache yesterday though any time something gets
wrong in Subversion, TortoiseSVN or Apache itself (config) it ends
in the Blue Screen of Death, hitherto virtually unknown here since
turning to Win2K a year ago. It's just a test setup so far, if things
clear up I might set user auth later, as well as change port to 8080
or something else, restrict Listen to the LAN etc. Perhaps I can
even use Apache to test absolute links between our several web
sites (different themes, no searchengine spamming) through
dummy domains via virtual hosting without having to go online.
Though so far I do not know how to do this in a way that I still could
access our "real world" domains, therefore surely not by the hosts
file ... But this is off-topic.

Thanks again - God bless!
