RE: Re: Issue with Apache2 SVN access

OK... Sorry about that... Here goes:

I have managed to use the repository locally with svn, remotely with
svnserve, and via web with WebSVN, but none give the functionality of
the dav_svn module, so this is why I'm insisting... Because of the
above, I realize that the problem is either in configuring or
installation of webdav, cause SVN itself works...

In my HTTPd conf I have:

<Location />
  DAV svn
  SVNPath /var/roy/repos/

My repository is in /var/roy/repos (example repository), I have also
tried with SVNPath /var/roy/... (I have also tried Location with a /svn
in case it wasn't liking being root/)

This is Linux Gentoo, I believe it is the latest version (I didn't
install it myself but it was upgraded very recently).

The error message I was referring to I am now unable to reproduce! I
would have copied it exactly if I had it in front of me... (.....!?) it
was a message that said that there was no repository in the path, or
something to that effect, however after creating a repository I am now
unable to reporduce the error... Even if I change the path to something

I have now gotten the error log to work... For some reason it wasn't
working I had to delete and recreate the log... So here is the result in
the error log when I get the 500:

[Fri Jun 18 22:58:30 2004] [error] [client] (20014)Error

 specified yet: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for

Any help greatly appreciated

We need /way/ more info. What platform? What exactly is the path to your
Subversion repository, and what does your <Location> block in your
Apache config look like? And if you're getting an Error 500, you're
either getting /something/ in your error log, or your error log isn't
configured properly.

Be specific, don't give "something like" messages, or we won't be able
to help you.
