That one's for svnserve

and this for apache.

Did you mix those two?

Start the svnserve manually with the debug option (or verbose or
whatever, don't remember what it's called). Then you'll see more output
as soon as you connect. You might catch an error message thrown which
can help.

If you're using apache, check the apache error log.

Since this is a server setup problem, you should ask on the Subversion
mailing list for help.
