If you get 403 you probably have access right problems. Have you loked into your Apache log file ? Maybe the user that Apache runs as, can't access that directory ?
Regardinf the try with file://, as far as I know, javahl does not support the file:// format. (I might be wrong though).

Subject: Can't access the repository by http:, file:, svn:, ...
I'm new to Subversion and first want to make a test on a local computer to access the repository via http.
I follow all steps in the book to configure my HTTP server. I've Apache 2.0.53 and Subversion 1.3.0 working on Windows XP SP1.
Here is a detailed list of what I do :
* in httpd.conf
* uncomment the line : LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
* add the line LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
* set the servername to myComputerName.myDomainName.fr:80 (i've try with localhost and localhost:80 too)
* Add those lines after the commented "Location" lines :
* with cmd.exe
svnadmin create c:\SubversionRepositories\rep1
that's works, i've all subversion files in my directory.
Then I think I've initialized an empty repository and I can now access it.
I install subclipse 0.9.108 to access the repository. I create a new repository location and type the URL : "http://localhost/repositories/rep1" <http://localhost/repositories/rep1> . The response is :
Error validating location: "org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: RA layer request failed
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/repositories/rep1'
svn: PROPFIND of '/repositories/rep1': 403 Forbidden (http://localhost)
I try the url "http://localhost:80/repositories/rep1" <http://localhost:80/repositories/rep1> but same message.
I try the url from an internet navigator (IE and Firefox) but 403 too.
After many other tries, I do an other test with "file:" instead of "http:".
Always with subclipse, I type "file://c:/SubversionRepositories/rep1" <file://c:/SubversionRepositories/rep1> as an URL. The message is now :
Error validating location: "org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException:
Could'nt open a repository
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file://c:/SubversionRepositories/rep1'
I've certainly forgotten something very simple ! The access to the repository via HTTP seems to be so easy.
Can someone help me ?
Thanks a lot
