Re: please help, svn repository stopped working...

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for your response... Let me correct myself, I am indeed running
apache 2.0.
I installed the server so long ago I forgot that I installed apache 2.0.

But since I received your response I started digging deeper, and
discovered what was causing the problem.
I am running FC3 - and selinux was enabled. Back when I was doing the
original install I spent hours trying to figure out what was wrong, and
somehow finally I stumbled across the fact that SELinux was casing those
access errors, and so I disabled it, and everything worked. It probably
wormed its way back to enabled on my system when I rebooted a while ago,
and I have not used the repository much and mostly forgot about this issue.

If anyone knows how to permanently disable selinux I think that would be
Or if anyone knows more about why selinux interferres with
web_dav/Apache2/subversion and how I can make them play nice then that
might be good too. But I'm not convinced that selinux is doing anything
for me period and would like to kill it once and for all probably.

But in the meantime, and in case anyone else has troubles with selinux
this command disables it (apparently until you reboot):

echo "0" > /selinux/enforce

Thanks again, I'm back to happy source control land.
