I looked over and read some of the FAQ items, but none appeared to be
related to my issues, however now that I've investigated further into
the
repository I see that the Apache user "nobody" is modify my repository
and potentially creating the problem. I just noticed some logfiles
that appear to be owned by "nobody". I think (as the book warned) that
this is entirely related to permissions. I tried to nip this in the
bud by opening the repository up with file permissions set to 777 for
the eval but I see I need change user accounts now as well.

Thanks for your help.

Carter.
