Hi all

I'm new in subversion and really need help completing this setup.
I installed subversion and apache on a linux server.

here's the snipet from httpd.conf
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so

<Location /svn>
DAV svn
SVNParentPath /home/username/local/svn
AuthzSVNAcessFile /home/username/local/svn/conf/svn-access-file
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Subversion Repository"
AuthUserFile /home/username/local/svn/conf/svn-auth-file
Require valid-user

the repository i created is in /home/username/local/svn and is called
project1 .

I created two users and two groups. still testing the system . here's
the access-file
developers = user1
marketing = user2
@developers = rw
@marketing = r
@developers = rw
@marketing =

i'm accessing apache from a squid proxy . i had a problem first that has
been resolved thanks to a post somewhere and i added the proper http
extension to the squid.conf.... i just thought i should mention this to
give a full picture if i can about my configuration..

i'm also using Eclipse on my windows workstation for development, with
tortoise plugin. Eclipse version is 3.0.2 and tortoise i believe is
1.1.3 and the tortoise plugin is 1.0.9 .

when i try to browse the repository (using firefox) it's always a
success. it asks for authentication information and this part works just
fine. marketing users can't enter test2 while developers can roam around
freely. Also, tortoise repo browser works perfectly well too. the
problem is when i try to Import files inside the Repo OR create a remote
folder. I always always always get this error " Can't open Activity DB :
APR doesn't understand this error code" . I thought maybe it's a
permision problem, so i changed owner for the SVNParent directory to the
user running the apache server (the user was already the owner anyways,
i just made sure) chown -R username /path/to/svnparentdir

didn't work.
i then did this chmod +777 -R /path/to/svnparentdir
didn't work either.

i downloaded and installed Subclipse plugin, as usual, ..repo browsing
works well, checkout works fine, but imorting, commiting or creating a
remote dir gives the same boring error .

does anybody have a clue about this? i really need help and would be
greatly indebted if u get me out of this...
