RE: 405 method not allowed error

The subversion checkout command only works on directories. If you're
actually trying to checkout a file (foo.doc) then it won't work.

You can get the file using svn cat
http://hostname/svn/pilot/foldera/foo.doc > foo.doc

Using the cat command will not keep history and you won't be able to
check changes back in.


Generally, you'd use svn co http://hostname/svn/pilot/foldera to
checkout the entire directory

Here's my relevent info: I can pass more if needed.

I can access the repository fine using my browser.
Any insight into what I'm doing wrong, or have misconfigured would be
helpful. Thanks.
