Re: Apache and Subversion give bad request on checkout

OK - so maybe I see where I might have messed up my explanation. My
apologies.

The SVNPath directive should be the absolute path to a single
repository. (e.g /my/path/my_repos)

The SVNParentPath should sit one level above the actual repositories
(e.g. if the repository is /my/path/my_repos1 and /my/path/repos2, then
SVNParentPath should be set to /my/path).

In your case, it appears that you do want to use more than one
repository (sycamore and crmweg). So you will use SVNParentPath
"c:\dev\codebase\cds"

If you need to put multiple levels inside of your Location directive for
other reasons, great. I normally serve my SVN project right off the web
root (<Location /repos>)

Regards,
Frank
