This issue relates to an earlier email sent to this list a little more than a year ago which received no response
I have the same problem with apache 2.0.50 and subversion 1.0.6 win32 installer (svn-1.0.6-setup.exe) on Windows 2000 w/ SP4. I load the modules and set up the location as indicated via the Subversion book:
LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
When I attempt to start apache as a service via the Apache Service Monitor I get an error. From the Event Logs I get:
The Apache service named reported the following error:
The Apache log files give no information.
If I start Apache from the command line by navigating to the bin directory and running Apache.exe it starts with no problems and I can view my repositories. I'm not sure if this in an Apache problem or a mod_dav_svn problem. I searched the subversion bug list and didn't see anything about it. Any input would be appreciated.
