Some "corruption" is not really that, but rather an issue with incorrectly set
ownership/rights on the database files.

Make sure that you examine closely the following section of the book:


specifically because you mention WebSVN. The ownership and rights on the files
in the db folder must be maintained in a consistent fashion. If you only use
file:// to access the repository, you can own the files with your ordinary user
ID; if you intend to access the repository by more than one method, you have to
be very careful.
