Thankyou Greg, the release will happen within the next 24 hours. I am at
work, and whilst at home I usually tend to programming etc. early in the

In my opinion, this is not an issue that should hold up the release. This
behavior is consistent with that of previous installers, so shouldn't cause
additional difficulties for people. (It's probably a fringe case where
somebody installs a new instance of Subversion to a directory different from
that of the original installation.) Besides, if the user is savvy enough to
configure httpd.conf for their particular repository, I'm sure they will be
able to figure out how to fix this problem should it occur.

If this is going to be a major issue I will hold off putting the installer

online. I did not personally change anything to do with apache files so I

will need to look at what happened between 1.4.2 and 1.4.3. Since I don't

use apache I will have to set it up and learn how to integrate subversion

before I can fix a release. If this is a pre-existing issue then maybe we

can let it go for 1.4.3 and try to address it before the next release? I

have had no feedback of any other problems. Thoughts?

I'm a longtime lurker on this list. Thanks everybody here for their great


I tried the new installer, and saw different behavior. I am running Apache

httpd 2.0.59. First of all, I stopped Apache and ran the un-installer for

Subversion 1.4.2. Once this process completed, I ran the installer for

1.4.3. During the installation process, I was never prompted for the

location of the Apache installation. (I assume you are guessing at the

proper location, and prompting if you don't find it.)

Like Peter, the apache modules were not installed to the Apache directory

tree. However, the httpd.conf file was pointed to the modules in the

Subversion directory.

Incidentally, I did not modify the httpd.conf file after I uninstalled

1.4.2. After the installation of 1.4.3, however, I had two entries for each

of the Subversion modules. Can this behavior be changed? I believe that

removing (or commenting) the old entries and adding the new ones would be

fine, but perhaps prompting the user for direction would be safer.
