Solved: Problem adding File: PROPFIND request failed

Hi Ben!

Thanks for your Reply!

I'm not using a dyndns-html-proxy or something - i'm just using it as
dns-server which doesn't affect html-requests in any way.
But that is definitly an interesting point to look at if that problem occurs
and someone is using dyndns + http proxy.

Just if you're interested, i solved this problem which was an
apache-misconfiguration:

I added the <Location> - Example for svn outside my virtual hosts in the
apache httpd-conf so it was reachable from every domain i serve with my
apache server.

The domain of interest where i checked out my wc had an "ErrorDocument
404" - Directive defined.
That's not very clever since svn is making an PROPFIND request befor adding
a file (just to see if its there).
My server delivered the standard index.html of the virtual host with 200 OK
and so svn wasn't able to determine if the file exist or not -> Error.

So i moved the svn-Location into a special subdomain-virtual host where i'll
avoid defining a standard 404 (or other error) document.

nevertheless - many thanks for your help - it pointed me into the right
direction.

greets from salzburg,

Johannes Jarolim
