One more thing, I'm also running svnserve on this server and am able to
check-out the code using "svn://myserver/projectA"!!!

        Thanks for the quick help. The directory /usr/local/svn is a
repository (created by running the "svnadmin create /usr/local/svn"
command). I changed SVNParentPath to read SVNPath in the httpd.conf
file, but still no luck. :(

I've imported an initial layout for the repository as follows:

 myserver# svn import . file:///path/to/repos --message 'Initial
repository layout'

Adding projectA
Adding projectA/trunk
Adding projectA/branches
Adding projectA/tags
Adding projectB
Adding projectB/trunk
Adding projectB/branches
Adding projectB/tags
Committed revision 1.

On checking-out projectA using the string
"http://myserver:8000/projectA" (I even tried
http://myserver:8000/svn/projectA), I got a similar message again. Am I
missing something?

Is /usr/local/svn a repository (that is, did you run "svnadmin
create /usr/local/svn"), or is it a directory which contains several
repositories (that is, "mkdir /usr/local/svn; svnadmin create /usr/

If the former, you need to change SVNParentPath to read SVNPath.
If the latter, you need to specify in the URL the name of the
repository you want to check out, for example http://myserver:8000/
