basic permissions question?

From: Peter <phorst_at_ointment.org>

I've built a Subversion 1.06 server on Linux. I created a new user and
group, 'svn', and set Apache 2.0.50 to run with that identity on port
8080. I am confused about the permissions that need (or should) be set
for the directory structure under which I will be storing my repository.
I tried /usr/svn/repos for starters. Currently /usr/svn and the
directories underneath have owner svn.svn and 0755 permissions, e.g.:

drwxr-xr-x 7 svn svn 4096 2004-07-05 19:15 repos

I am trying to access http://www.ointment.org:8080/svn and am getting
403'd. Here are some lines from httpd.conf that I hope can shed light on
my confusion:

ServerRoot "/usr/local/apache2"
Listen 8080
LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
User svn
Group svn
ServerName www.ointment.org:8080
DocumentRoot "/usr/local/apache2/htdocs"

<Location /svn>
    DAV svn
    SVNParentPath /usr/svn/repos
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "Subversion Repository"
    AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-file
    Require valid-user

Can someone offer direction, please?

Thanks much.


A knock at my office door! That means someone is going to talk my ear off
about crappy bullshit I don't understand!
