Re: [mod_dav_svn] Constant Need to Recover

Although they all belong to the same group, and you may even use
chmod g+s on the directories to force that to remain so, you *also* need
to make sure that different users (you, the apache user) have a
group-write umask (002 instead of the usual 022) so that files you
create (new db log files, say) are also writable by the other users.
There are various methods for doing that.
