RE: Help: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

You are absolutely right. I change SVNParentPath to SVNPath, it works
perfectly. That must be the problem.

When I created the repository, I used:
Svnadmin create /usr/local/svnrep

Then, I imported an empty project MantisIQ into that repository, I guess
that caused the problem you just talked about.

SVNParentPath is really confusing.

Thank you very much for your help.

Possibly you fell in to the same trap I did in regards to how
ParentPath works in regards to mod_dav_svn.

Did you do:
svnadmin create /usr/local/svnrep/MantisIQ/some-svn-repo
svnadmin create /usr/local/svnrep/MantisIQ/some-other-svn-repo

Where MantisIQ is just a plain directory that has sub directories
containing repositories?

svnserve and file:// urls will work with that, but apache will not.

svnserve will delve deep in to the tree trying to find the repo and
then perform actions relative to that, but the apache module *requires*
that the repositories live directly under your ParentPath location.

Completely disregard the above if you did the equivalent of:
svnadmin create /usr/local/svnrep/MantisIQ

in that case, it should be working and I have no clue what could be the
