RE: newbie: Apache aborts on large checkouts

I am having the same problem, except this happens when I try to pull the log
for the first revision. The source is pretty big - circa 17,000 files. Both
svn and Tortoise do exactly the same - sit there doing nothing for about 20
minutes, then come back with the below error.


This is on the server hosted by CollabNet, BTW

I've seen something similar when doing an svn update. Try setting the
LimitXMLRequestBody option in httpd.conf to a larger value (or 0); the
default is 1000000.

See the Apache docs at:

Hi there!

First things first: I'm not only new to this list but to subversion, too.
So, if you want any log files or something, please tell me where to find
them etc.

My server-configuration:
SuSE Linux Enterprise 9
Apache 2.0.55
neon 0.24.7
Berkeley db 4.2.52
subversion 1.2.3

I'm using WINDOWS XP and Eclipse 3.01 as client, together with the most
current subclipse-plugin. Now, when I'm trying to check out the whole
project I created earlier, I geht the following error message:

     RA layer request failed
svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/XXX/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: REPORT of '/svn/XXX/!svn/vcc/default': Could not read status line:
connection was closed by server. ( http://XXX/ <http://XXX/> )

The Apache error-log doesn't contain any entries for the time of the
error. Has anybody a clue?

There was a similar posting from a user 'Gene' a few days ago. It contains
the same error-message. Unfortunately, the email-address he provided
doesn't work, so I couldn't ask him if he got any solutions or hints per
private mail (probably not).

Thanks in advance,
