RE: 403 Forbidden errors hitting Win2K Apache Repo

Hey Ben,

Thanks much for the reply! Your email did just the trick to point me in
the right direction. It hadn't hit me yet that the access method was
the issue.

Since my problem existed even when I tried to do a checkout via HTTP on
the svn server itself, I knew I had to look at the way Apache was
configured. Sure enough, by explicitly forcing the access permissions
wide open on REPORT, I was able to get a checkout to succeed.

I don't understand why my default setup didn't work. The Subversion
docs for setting up Apache don't mention this. I combed over the Apache
docs and my httpd.conf file, but I see nothing to explain why GET would
be accepted but REPORT rejected if neither of them is ever mentioned
explicitly. Can you offer any enlightenment here?

Thanks again!
