Perhaps your Apache mod_dav_svn module is compiled with a different
version of BDB than the svnadmin which created the repository?

Assuming you can still access the repository on the command-line, I
suggest you convert it to FSFS format. So many problems reported on
this list are caused by using BerkeleyDB repositories, and I've yet
to see any resulting from using FSFS repositories.

You should dump the repository to a text file, then reinstall all
parts of Subversion, so as to have the same version everywhere. Then
create a new FSFS repository, and then import the dump file.
