Version mismatch SVN/Apache (Mac OS X)

Hi all,

in my Locale Area Network, I want to setup an apache/svn server
installation on a Macintosh running Mac OS X 10.4.3.

After quite a lot of googling and reading documentation (including
this list's archives), especially the macdevcenter article


I ended up downloading and installing all the required and nicely
prepared packages from


This gives me following versions:

$ /usr/local/subversion/bin/svn --version
svn, version 1.2.3 (r15833)
    compiled Nov 29 2005, 18:59:02

$ /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl -v
Server version: Apache/2.2.0
Server built: Dec 2 2005 13:52:28

As long as httpd *doesn't* try to load the "mod_dav_svn" module, it
runs fine.
As soon as the "mod_dav_svn" module is included in the httpd.conf, I
get following error message:

$ /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl -t
httpd: Syntax error on line 100 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
Module "/tmp/roots.XgDlOrcG/src/subversion-1.2.3/subversion/
mod_dav_svn/mod_dav_svn.c" is not compatible with this version of
Apache (found 20050708, need 20051115). Please contact the vendor for
the correct version.

It's not obvious to me what causes this error, nor how to fix it.

This happens on two different machines (both running Mac OS X 10.4.3).
Locally, I can create and use repositories.

Does anybody know what's going on?
