Re: '/media/Repositories/db/transactions/0-1.txn': Permission denied

When accessing the repository via http, apache's user or group must have
write permission to the repository tree

Get the User and Group under which apache runs from the httpd.conf
file. We use svn and svn
run the following commands as root

cd /media
chown svn:svn Repositiories -R
chmod g+w Repositories -R

That should fix it up
