Previously you said:

Did you restore the directory rights and ownership after you ran #2? In
general, I believe the procedure is that #3 should preceed #2, which will do the
same thing with the appropriate rights and ownership. It is almost never the
right thing to do anything as root; it is not required as long as the user has
rights to the DB files, and it often leaves behind files owned by root so that
ordinary user access is prevented.

You didn't say what access method you were using: svn://, http://, or file://,
which shouldn't make a difference but would be good to know. I'm at the limit
of my knowledge, though...
