R: RE: getting "svn: PROPFIND of xxxxx: could not connect to server" error...

Hi bruce,

Normally, I you use SVNParentPath with the following apache conf:

<Location /prefix-to-identify-all-svn-repos>
   DAV svn
   SVNParentPath put-here-full-pathname-of-parent-directory-of-repos
</Location>

having something like

<Location /svn>
   DAV svn
   SVNParentPath /usr/local/repos
</Location>

then any repository created under /usr/local/repos is visible with the url:
http://yourhost/svn/<repositoryname>

where <repositoryname> is the name of the subdirectory of /usr/local/repos containing a
subversion repository.

I have no experience of SVNPath but I think that with your configuration:

<Location /svn1>
   DAV svn
   SVNPath /svnroot/svntest2
</Location>

you should have a repository in /svnroot/svntest2 and it should be accessible as
http://yourhost/svn1

Hope it helps,

Guido.

Oggetto: RE: getting "svn: PROPFIND of xxxxx: could not connect to
server" error...

no prob...

i'm inclined to beleive that my issue is really with correctly setting up
the SVPath/SVNParentPath within the submission 'Location' block.

i have the following dir structure on the hard drive:

  /svnroot
    /svn
    /svntest2

i'd like to know what should be the actual values in a real/hypothetical
'location' block. i also need to know what would be the information, if i
only wanted to get a single repository using SVNPath, or multiple
repositories using SVNParentPath. and of course, i'd need to knwo the right
way to access the single/multiple respositories using 'http'.

in following the examples, i'm still getting the above errors...

my 'location' block is

LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
<Location /svn1>
   DAV svn
   SVNPath /svnroot/svntest2
</Location>

i'm trying to get to the 'svntest2' repository i'd like to be able to access
it by 'http://myserver/svntest2' or 'http://myserver/svnroot/svntest2' or
'http://myserver/abc' if 'abc pointed back to the correct repository!! at
this point, i'm lost in how to make this work, and rectify the errors...

any help/assistance/etc.. would be helpful!!

regards,

-bruce

Sorry Bruce... didn't mean to reply directly to you. Here's the message
for the list.

What's the layout of the directories here? †If it's:
† /svnroot
† † |--- repo1/
† † |--- repo2/

then you'll want SVNParentPath instead of SVNPath. †In that case your URLs
would look like:
http://server.name/svntest2/repo1

This isn't a berkeley problem... it's simply not pointed to an actual
repository. †Getting SVNPath or SVNParentPath pointed to the correct
location will help fix your problem. †As a side note, make sure you get
the permissions right. †You'll need to repository to be owned by the
apache user in order for it to work correctly.
