There are several possible reasons for this:
* server is not configured correctly
   -> check the apache error log, you might find some information
      in there which will help.
* when you moved the repository, you forgot to do a dump/reload
   of the repository (that is necessary especially if the repository
   was moved between different OS)
* you're trying to acess the repository with the wrong url (svn://
   instead of http:// or vice-versa)
* if your new server is on linux, you used the wrong gcc version
   to compile the Subversion package
* a proxy rejects connections to the new server repo - most proxies
   or routers need a while (or even need a manual reset!) until they
   'learn' the new route to the server
