Same answer I gave you on that forum. You're using svnserve, but
attempting to access the server using http. Use svn:// instead.

Your nightmares will be far less severe if you read the fine manual,
then read it again.

You probably got the default Apache page, which really just says
"congratulations, you can serve pages via HTTP." Which has very little
to do with Subversion.
