I've stumbled accross an annoying problem with my
We have a setup where gforge/subversion is running on the same host (and
virtual server), therefor we have to have ErrorDocument configured to
what gforge needs (404.php), which basically does some redirection to
As some other site might have similar needs, and run into the same
For the virtual host an ErrorDocument 404 handler is enabled, all
non-existing pages will trigger a redirect (HTTP 302) to a login page.
Here's the config part of apache2:
ErrorDocument 404 /404.php
### Error output of svn ci -m '' after adding the file
Adding (bin) lib/postgresql-8.0-311.jdbc3.jar
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: PROPFIND request failed on
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/test/trunk/lib/postgresql-8.0-311.jdbc3.jar': 302
Setting the ErrorDocument 404 default for the SVN repos locations solved
AuthName "test - Subversion Repository"
ErrorDocument 404 default
<LimitExcept GET PROPFIND OPTIONS REPORT>
See also thread "Unable to copy trunk to release" which show the same
error for copy:
SVN client usabilty
For the average user the problem is far from obvious due to that error
response, as I don't know why a propfind is done for a file which has to
be added first to have properties on the server (same for copy to new
Either the HTTP 302 (redirect) should be accepted too, like the expected
HTTP 404 (not found), for actions like add/copy, which would solve this
problem completly or a more obvious error could be reported to the user.
Any thought's on this?
Thanks for reading this far and BR
