help: using http: returns 'Could not open the requested SVN filesystem'

Hi, I'm having trouble using http checkout. Using file: works great, but
when I try http:, it returns an error. The relevant info is below, I think.
I think it's permissions or apache set up, or using 'nobody' to run Apache,
but I'm not sure.


Please let me know if there's anything else I need to provide.





THIS WORKS ------------------------------


root@host [/tmp/testsvn/checkoutspace]# svn checkout
file:///usr/local/svn_repository/testsvn/trunk testsvn

A testsvn/test.txt

Checked out revision 2.
