RE: svn repository on a mapped drive

It isn't clear to me from your message what OS the Apache server is
installed under.
When I tried to do a similar setup running Apache under Windows 2000 and
Windows XP, I had to set it up to run as a service under my login id so it
would have access to the mapped drive, which is a protected SAMBA share on a
Solaris box. And I had to use the UNC addressing format, since the mapped
drive isn't really mapped for the service.
So, if you're running Apache under Windows, I suggest having it run under an
ID that has the right network access to the storage server, and use UNC

I have installed the SVN with apache on a blade Server and the repositories
on a storage server.

<Location /svn>
DAV svn
SVNListParentPath on
#SVNIndexXSLT "/svnindex.xsl"
SVNParentPath k:\svn\testprojekt
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Subversion SVN repositories"
AuthUserFile passwd
#AuthzSVNAccessFile svnaccessfile
Require valid-user
After I pass the login I get the following message:
<m:human-readable errcode="720003">
Can't open directory 'k:\svn\testprojekt': Das System kann den angegebenen
Pfad nicht finden.  
It looks like the apache server can’t find the path?
I also tried the UNC path “no chance “.
But the apache server is running under system account with admin rights.
It’s also possible to map the drive of the storage server and create
If I check out the project with the explorer on a client PC in the network
its working proper!
If anyone has an idea what’s the mistake I made then please give me a hand!
