location tag

I have a question regarding the location tag. We have Subversion working
fine with apache, our apache .conf file location tag looks something
like this:

 

<Location /Repos>

    Order Allow,Deny

    Allow From all

    Dav svn

    SVNParentPath /versioncontrol/repositories

    Require valid-user

    PasswdFile %%LDAP%%

    AuthType Basic

    AuthName "Version Control"

    LDAPConfigFile /versioncontrol/repositories /ldap.conf

    AuthzSVNAccessFile /versioncontrol/repositories /auth.conf

</Location>

 

...so now I can access this using http://MyServer/Repos/MyRepository.

 

My boss however has tried to access it like this:
http://MyServer/repos/MyRepository and receives an error like this:

 

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

- <http://dsedev.dse.com.au/repos/Test/##> < <D:error
xmlns:D="DAV:" xmlns:m="http://apache.org/dav/xmlns" xmlns:C="svn:">

  < <C:error />

  < <m:human-readable errcode="3025">Could not open
the requested SVN filesystem</m:human-readable>

            </D:error>

 

 

...so he wants to know why the URL is case sensitive. The confusing
thing is that when you try to access with the latter, you are asked to
log in, indicating the Location tag is case insensitive and has been
entered but then fails.

 

The error from apache is:

[Tue Jun 21 12:55:46 2005] [info] [client 10.58.5.166] Access granted:
'sgardner' GET repos:/Test

[Tue Jun 21 12:55:46 2005] [error] [client 10.58.5.166] (20014)Error
string not specified yet: Can't open file
'/versioncontrol/repositories/repos/format': No such path or directory.

 

...the log on a correct login is:

[Tue Jun 21 12:55:50 2005] [info] [client 10.1.1.38] Access granted:
'sgardner' GET Test:/

 

I have scanned the subversion book and there is no real reference to
this.

Can anyone give me some idea what is happening?

 

Thanks
