Subversion is down, and we are stressing

We've been using Subversion (current incarnation: A PC running linux (Fedora
core 2, release candidate 1) with subversion Version 1.0.1 in apache. It's a
completely out-of-the-box installation. It's been working fine for several

This morning, I did an update on my working copy, all cool. Then I ssh'd
into svnserver (the box running subversion) and did "svnadmin dump repos >
d" which is what I usually do to make a dump of the repository, as a backup.
What I didn't do was "su -" first; so I did the command as the wrong user.
Oopsie. Subversion fell over. Apparently something in this command alters
files in the db directory, changing permissions or something.

We tried all sorts of things to get it back up, including "chmod 777 -R
repos". Working copies still can't see the reposity, nor can we get to it
through web browser.

The httpd log says it can't find the directory tree.

We're at the end of our options here. What else can we try?

As I wait for a reply, there are nine unhappy engineers waiting along with
me. And my boss. Naw, pressure doesn't bother
