Most likely, apache can't find/load the Subversion modules. Check the
paths, maybe you need to copy the *.so modules and dlls from the
Subversion installation folder to the apache bin folder.

Also, check the apache error log file.
And if apache doesn't even start, you can start it in test mode from the
command line (not as a service), which will print important errors to
the console window.
