RE: permissions problems are a catch 22 (newbie)

when using Apache, it is normally the only thing touching the database. As such, no user should need a system account for accessing the repostories, and no permissions problems need to occur. Allowing multiple system users to write to the repository is asking for catastrophy. Either use Apache, svnserve, or only allow one system user file:/// access.
