can be used in addition to the http protocol. Now that you pointed

"if the apache test page shows up on the svn folder"

I am not sure what you mean exactly by that. The only apache test page
that I know of is the one that is in Apache's htdocs folder, which
contains web content only (no SVN stuff here). Can you explain please.

I placed that Location block (copy/pasted directly from documentation)
at the VERY end of Apache's config file as instructed. It is not
inside any other block.
