hi...

unsuccessfully trying to set up an apache/subversion repository access
environment.

i have rh8.0
       apache2.0.50
       subversion-1.1.0-rc2
       berkeley 4.0.52

i can access the repository via the 'svn' client when i setup the default
svnserve deamon.

when i try to access the repository via the apache, i get the error:
   svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svntest2'
   svn: PROPFIND of '/svntest2': could not connect to server
(http://192.168.1.52)

the access log is:
192.168.1.52 - - [06/Sep/2004:23:08:30 -0700] "PROPFIND /svntest2 HTTP/1.1"
500 234 "-" "SVN/1.1.0 (Release Candidate 2) neon/0.24.7"
1

the error log is:

the portion of the config file that deals with dav/svn is:
LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
<Location /svntest2>
   DAV svn
   SVNPath /svnroot
#
# # Limit write permission to list of valid users.
# <LimitExcept GET PROPFIND OPTIONS REPORT>
# # Require SSL connection for password protection.
# # SSLRequireSSL
#
# AuthType Basic
# AuthName "Authorization Realm"
# AuthUserFile /absolute/path/to/passwdfile
# Require valid-user
# </LimitExcept>
</Location>

i rebuilt the svn apps from source and connected them to the current version
of the berkeley db on my box... i didn't want to do a complete rebuild of
apache as well....

everything appears to be as it should be... however, given that it doesn't
work, there's an error somewhere!!! searching through google indicates that
others have had a smiliar problem, but nothing shed any light onto what the
issue really is.

any pointers/comments/thoughts are appreciated...

thanks

-bruce
