I did have SELinux running, but hadn't reviewed that section of the FAQ.

It doesn't, however, seem to have had any effect.

After issuing the following commands:

$ chcon -R -h -t httpd_sys_content_t /home/svn/test-repos
$ chcon -R -h -t httpd_sys_content_t /home/svn/test-fs-repos

I still get the same error_log, reprinted here again:

That's definitely useful for when I do get the repository up and running.

Unfortunately, the repos are only available internally to our network.

See above.

Thanks again for your help.
