The SVNParentPath is intended to be used when you have multiple repositories
located beneath that directory.

That's because the path '/repository' does not contain a repository, as far as
Apache is concerned (you didn't actually show us what 'svnadmin create' line you

If you have a single repository, you need

        SVNPath /usr/local/apache2/repository

in httpd.conf. If you have multiple repositories there, they you need to spell
out which repository you want:

        svn co http://localhost/repository/proj1
