Terminology problem: Using SVNParentPath, you can specify one
*directory* which contains all your repositories. Repositories
themselves cannot contain other repositories.

That ServerAlias line doesn't make any sense. ServerAlias is supposed
to specify an alternate hostname by which the virtual host can be
accessed; "/svn" is not a hostname. You're also missing a ServerName
directive, which I thought was mandatory.

When you use "SVNPath /usr/local/servidor/svn", then /usr/local/
servidor/svn must be a repository that you created with svnadmin create:

$ svnadmin create /usr/local/servidor/svn

You can then access the repository like this (if your server name is

$ svn ls http://svn.example.com:4000/

Conversely, when you use "SVNParentPath /usr/local/servidor/svn",
then /usr/local/servidor/svn must be a directory that contains
repositories that you created with svnadmin create:

$ mkdir /usr/local/servidor/svn
$ cd /usr/local/servidor/svn
$ svnadmin create repo1
$ svnadmin create repo2

You can then access the repositories by putting their names in the URL:

$ svn ls http://svn.example.com:4000/repo1/
$ svn ls http://svn.example.com:4000/repo2/

You cannot get a list of repositories by doing this:

$ svn ls http://svn.example.com:4000/

At least, not until Subversion 1.3.0.
