Re: Apache2 - Subversion configuration

Hi Ryan,

Yes, I'd created the repository at /srv/svn/repos/project using the svnadmin command.

The alias command was part of the example file I was using - I've removed it and the directory thing now.

I'm fairly sure that the problem I have now (error code 2 - unable to open SVN filesystem) is due to file permissions, but even if I set full access to everyone, it still doesn't work. I've made sure that the repository is ok by using the svnlook command, and that seems ok, so I can't think what else it could be....

And there is a directory /srv/svn/repos/project on your hard drive?
You created it with "svnadmin create /srv/svn/repos/project"? It does
sound like that's what you're wanting.

On the off chance that you're in fact wanting to access the
repository /srv/svn/repos, you would presumably want:

<Location /repos>
    DAV svn
    SVNPath /srv/svn/repos

Regardless, Steve's suggestion about the Alias directive for /repos
is also worth investigating. Why do you have that? It looks like
you're maybe doing a directory listing of all repositories? If so,
are you aware of SVNParentPath and the Subversion 1.3+ directive
