Re: Apache2 - Subversion configuration

Okay, that seemed to be the user permissions - some combination I hadn't tried! Now I get the following message:

<D:error>
<C:error/>
<m:human-readable errcode="2">
Could not open the requested SVN filesystem
</m:human-readable>
</D:error>

I've set the permissions on the repository to be the same as for the parent folders (i.e. the same as the change that switched me from getting generic http 403 errors to this kind)

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Keith

I think that the repository directory ownership is set up okay, but it does seem to be the most likely cause - it just seems weird that not even the alias command seems to have access allowed

Is the Alias directive confusing it? I'm no expert on Apache
configuration, but that looks like a possible culprit.

Which user does Apache run as? Does that user have full read/write
access to /srv/svn/repos?
