Re: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

The problem was a simple matter of permissions. httpd was running as
nobody, nogroup.
So, it could not access the respository. I changed the group to "svn",
who owns the registry,
(group svn has rwx permission) and HTTP access worked fine.

Look for User and Group settings in httpd.conf
