RE: Beginning Subversion - 404 Not Found

Ok, after a little research I found this page which has a chmod 1/4 of
the way down

http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/374

The chmod in the tutorial I was using:

http://www.howtoforge.com/debian_subversion_websvn

Was this

chmod -R 770 /var/svn-repos/*

Which didn't work

But this new chmod did

chmod -R 777 /var/svn-repos/*

I'm not quite the linux guru yet but is this way chmod command secure or
am I opening myself up to future problems?

Bob

Ok my apache error log says Could not open the requested_SVN filesystem

So maybe some kind of permission problem?

What does the Apache error log say? What exactly is it trying and
failing to find?
