webdav access: permission denied with full permissions given

Are there any situations where the httpd error_log will list Permission
Denied for a repository resource besides file permission and owner
restricting apache access.

In other words, may an error code of Permission Denied to a given file be
caused by something other
than file/directory permissions?

I have been battling with the issue for nearly a week and found no solution.


Set up: Fedora core 3, Httpd 2.0.52, Subversion 1.1
Additionally installed with yum: subversion-devel, mod_dav_svn

I followed the quick startup guide in the book to the letter, and
succesfully checked out files from the initial import. When I then tried to
access the repository with a Web Browser it reported a http internal server

* Tried both the SVNPath & SVNParentPath directives
* Made svn group, made apache user member, and applied it to all files and
* Ensured that the apache user had access to all files and directories in
the repos
* Set group write permissions & group ID flag on all on all directories in
* Set sticky bit on repository

The apache error_log states:
(20014) Error string not specified yet: Can't open file
/var/sourcecode/dspc/format: Permission denied

I consistently get this error no matter how I try to create a repository.
Even if I set permissions 777 do I get this error! So the next obvious line
of enquirery is to look for non permission issues.

After the first error there are three others: Could not fetch resource
information, Could not open the requested SVN filesystem *2

Is there are way to enable extended logging output in subversion?

Any clues?



<Location /repos>

DAV svn

SVNParentPath /var/sourcecode


when I access http://server/repos I get a http error 500
