Re: access denied with file:// protocol

Simple answer: You did what you're not supposed to do. Put the
repository on a network share.

In a multiuser environment this is a big no-no. As a local testbed it is
ok but not in a multiuser environment that will access the files at any
rate and order. The database will get corrupted and you'll get exactly
these kind of problems. Read the subversion manual about it and then go
for a server installation instead.

You'll have to install the svn server either together with an apache web
server or as a standalone service/daemon depending on what access and
features you'll want. It takes about 5 mins to get a standalone server
up and running (if that much).
