RE: Subversion at Root?

Unfortunately, anything below the Location containing SVNParentPath is
treated as a directory containing a Subversion filesystem.

Off the top of my head, and realistically speaking, once you have made
the root of your server the subversion parent path, I think there isn't
much of a window left to have ordinary html pages or other data.

However, maybe some experimentation with creating a repository that
contains webpages would suffice? Quite a hack, but just a thought.

Subject: Subversion at Root?

Is this possible?

We currently have our subversion repositories available from the root of
the web server so that, for example, a repository called repo is
available at http://myhost/repo .

We are using <Location / > and including a parent path so that any new
repository I put in the parent directory is available as
http://myhost/whatever

We've been going on like this for a while and I like it. But, now I want
to do some non-svn web stuff with this web server. I'd like to be able
to now have regular web content served up from another directory, maybe
at http://myhost/info or something.

But if I create an Alias, it doesn't keep the system from trying
subversion stuff on http://myhost/info calls.
