Re: Apache Question

Well here is an overview of how I set things up. First, Fedora Core 2
comes with the correct version of the Berkeley DB, but an older version
of the Apache runtime. Here are the steps:

1. Removed (or did not install) Fedora distribute Apache HTTP Server.
2. Downloaded apr-0.9.5-0.4.rpm and applied it to Fedora.
3. Downloaded Apache HTTP Server 2.0.52.
4. In httpd-2.0.52:

$ ./configure --enable-mods-shared=all --enable-dav \
 --enable-so --enable-ssl --enable-vhost-alias --enable-deflate
$ make
# make install

5. Downloaded Subversion 1.1.1, unpacked and ran the following:

$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make
# make install

6. This should put the svn modules in the /usr/local/apache2/modules
directory. If not then something is not good.

7. Added the following to the httpd.conf

LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so

<Location /svn/repos>
    DAV svn
    SVNPath /media/svn/eel
</Location>

8. Created a SVN project:

$ svnadmin create /media/svn/eel

9. Changed all files to apache user and group with correct permissions.

$ cd /media
$ find svn -exec chmod apache.apache {} \;
$ find svn -type d -exec chmod 770 {} \;
$ find svn -type f -exec chmod 660 {} \;
$ chmod 755 /media

10. Started apache and hit the URL "http://localhost/svn/eel". At first
I forgot to execute the chmod on /media and received a similar error you
are noting.

The only other suggestion I have, is to use a directory off root (like
/media). This will remove any doubts about the issues of the mounted
hard disk. It should work, but do a simple install first. After working,
add more complexity until you have it where you want it.

Hope this helps.
