I have done what you suggested and I still having a problem, though I know I
am almost there..i can taste it..

I go into my repos directory through the command prompt ( Windows XP)

svn import trunk http://(website):8080/svn/repos --message "Initial
repository layout"
Authentication realm: http://(website):8080 Subversion repositories
Password for 'xxx": xxxx
Authentication realm: http://(website):8080 Subversion repositories
User name: xxx
Password for xxx : xxxx
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/repos'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/repos' : 301 Moved Permanently http://(website):8080


The only thing I have scene on 301 error is that there is an access call
problem.. ( however the last time I had the repos outside the Apache htdocs
folder ..it was only able to be accessed form the web 50% of the time.)

DocumentRoot "E:/ApacheGroup/Apache2/htdocs"

<Directory "E:/ApacheGroup/Apache2/htdocs">

<Location /svn>
DAV svn
SVNParentPath E:\ApacheGroup\Apache2\htdocs\SVN
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Subversion repositories"
AuthUserFile passwd
#AuthzSVNAccessFile svnaccessfile
Require valid-user

Should the path of SVN/repos directory be outside the Apache htdocs, in
order to be accessed..or am i missing something here in coinfiguration of
the SVNParentPath??

Thank you for your help .. I already gained 10 grey hairs in the past day
working on this..

Ms. Vera O Newman :)
