Not knowing what server you are using I'm refering to Redhat linux
9.0 and David's RPMs.
After a default install I created a fix_permissions scripts that
does "chown -R apache.apache *", in your case effectively
"chown -R apache.apache /var/roy/repos". That is assuming your
webserver is running as the user and group apache of course.

This was the only thing I needed to do. I also noted that every
access using the file:// protocol resulted in a reset of ownership
of the database to that of the user I was logged in as. I draw the
conclusion (right or wrong) that file:// could not be used together
with http:// access via apache+DAV.

From this info I hope you are able to find your problem. Because
it really DOES work :)

Good luck to you!
