NameVirtualHost's Root shoul be the root of subversion

From: Lukas Ruf <ruf_at_rawip.org>

Dear all,

another thing I do not really understand in the documentation of
subversion as found in the svnbook is handling of repositories located
directly at the root of a NameVirtualHost.

I am on the way to configure a server called svn.rawip.org as follwos:

  Servername svn.rawip.org
  Documentroot /home/rawip/Svn
  <Location />
    DAV svn
    SVNParentPath /home/ruf/Svn
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "Subversion Repository"
    AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/dav_svn.passwd
    Require valid-user

on the server, I create a repository:

  svnadmin create /home/ruf/Svn

Now, I would like to access the svn-repository as follows:

    uccellina:~/Svn!120> svn mkdir https://svn.rawip.org:8443/Conf

This results in:
  svn: OPTIONS request failed on '/'
  svn: OPTIONS of '/': 500 Internal Server Error (https://svn.rawip.org:8443)
  svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
  svn: 'svn-commit.4.tmp'

And on the server:

[info] Initial (No.1) HTTPS request received for child 3 (server svn.rawip.org:443)
[info] Subsequent (No.2) HTTPS request received for child 3 (server svn.rawip.org:443)
[error] Could not fetch resource information. [403, #0]
[error] (2)No such file or directory: The URI does not contain the name of a repository. [403, #190001]
[error] (20014)Error string not specified yet: Can't open file '/home/ruf/Svn/error/format': No such file or directory
[error] Could not fetch resource information. [500, #0]
[error] Could not open the requested SVN filesystem [500, #2]
[error] (84)Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem [500, #2]

My questions:

- Why does the server-log file report svn.rawip.org:443 although I am
  sure that there is no server listening at that port:
    komsys-pc-ruf:~!52> netstat -l | grep 443
    tcp6 0 0 *:8443 *:* LISTEN

- What do I make wrong? Is there anything obvious?

Thanks for any enlightenment!
