COPY fails: 502 Bad Gateway (over https / SSL)

From: Brett Shelton <Brett.Shelton_at_toro.com>

The Problem I am having is that when performing a copy on subversion
over SSL, Apache returns a 502 Bad Gateway. It appears to be a bug that
could be fixed in dav_svn.


I know others have had this problem in the past, but I have not seen a
resolution within the dav_svn module. I hope we can resolve the problem
so that users do not need to use a custom Perl or Ruby script... or hack

Jeff Snyder mentions a couple solutions, one of which is hacking
dav_svn, which I don't want to get into (see
http://blog.caffeinated.me.uk/?p=5 ).

** Is this problem ready to be submitted in the Subversion Issue
Tracker? **



I am currently using apache_2.0.55 with openssl. To recreate the
problem, access the server via https and attempt a COPY or MOVE.


Below is the relevant section from httpd.conf:


<VirtualHost *:443>

    ServerName svn1.mydomain.com

    ServerAlias svn.mydomain.com


    ServerAdmin webmaster@svn1.mydomain.com.com

    DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/htdocs/svn"


    ErrorLog logs/svn1.mydomain.com-error_log

    CustomLog logs/svn1.mydomain.com-access_log common



      <Location /svn>

            DAV svn

            SVNParentPath "C:/svn-repos"


            AuthType Basic

            AuthName "Subversion repositories. For readonly access to
most projects, you may use user: guest (password:



            AuthUserFile passwd

            AuthzSVNAccessFile svnaccessfile

            Require valid-user





<VirtualHost *:80>

    ServerName svn1.mydomain.com

    ServerAlias svn.mydomain.com


    Redirect / https://svn.mydomain.com/


    ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com

    DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/htdocs/svn"
