RE: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

From: James Couball <justright_at_couball.com>

/home/svn and all files it includes must be accessable by the process that
apache runs as.

On my system, where httpd runs as the apache user, I would do this:

chown -R apache.apache /home/svn

This has been answered many times in the last week or so on the mail list ;)

Sincerely,
James Couball.

Subject: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

Installed David Summers' FC1 RPMs ( excluding http) on a yum-current FC1
notebook (reiserfs).

Configured localhost httpd-2.0.48-1.2 httpd.conf with the following

        LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so

        <Location /svn>
                DAV svn
                SVNParentPath /home/svn
        </Location>

httpd daemon restarted without error.

Repository successfully created via

        svnadmin create /home/svn/test

/home/svn/ ownership is root and permissions are 755 and 644 respectively.

Browser pointed to http://localhost/svn/test complains:

        "Could not open the requested SVN filesystem"

BTW, same error message for non-existent repository too (
http://localhost/svn/foo )

Help please

Raymond
