RE: 301 Moved Permanently ( Apologies )

To be totally honest, NO, that FAQ didn't help me, and I don't think it helps a vast majority of people who encounter the 301 error, or else there wouldn't be so many people continually posted new threads asking about it. I am not trying to be rude or anything, but that FAQ seems, to me at least, to cover a very specific issue. And that is not the issue I was having. I did not have any weird overlap in my DocumentRoot vs <Location> filesystem paths. My issue seems to stem entirely from the fact that Subversion (at least 1.3.1 installed with Apache 2.0.x) doesn't handle a <Location /> directive gracefully.

I fixed my problem by simply adding the line:

Alias / /path/to/repoitory/parent
<Location />
###
</Location>

Now, I readily admit I am no expert with either Apache or Subversion, but adding that Alias line fixed my problem and I don't see how its related in any way to what http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#http-301-error is specifically addressing. Believe me, I wouldn't have created yet another new 301 thread if I felt the FAQ addressed my problem.

Cheers,
Matt

This FAQ issue doesn't help:
http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#http-301-error ?

bye,

Erik.
