+<p>It'a also possible that you have an object in the web root
+which has the same name as your repository URL. For example,

+and your Subversion repository is located at
+<tt>/home/svn/repo</tt>. You then configure Apache to serve
+the repository at <tt>http://localhost/myrepo</tt>. If you then
+create the directory <tt>/var/www/myrepo/</tt> this will cause
+a 301 error to occur.</p>
