You have to install either svnserve or Apache and then the Subversion
module for Apache. And then configure the SVN server (svnserve or
apache), i.e., edit some config files to make this work.

No. You have to create the repository on the server. TortoiseSVN as a
client then accesses that repository via the network protocol (either
svn:// in case of svnserve based server setup, or http(s) in case of an
apache based setup).
