    Refer to the Help or documentation for that service to determine the problem.
  It have installed Subversion : svn-1.4.0-setup on Apache apache_2.0.58-win32-x86-no_ssl as per the instruction I got from site.
  Also, the mod_dav_svn.so dll is available at Apache2/modules/
  I notice that when I uncomment (ref : http://better-scm.berlios.de/subversion/Svn-Win32-Inst-Guide.html)
          LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
  and tried to stop and start Apache2 service, it gives me that error.

  I installed Apache2 and subverion 2 on my windows 2000 machine. Apache 2 service was running fine till I add the following line in httpd.conf file..
  LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
  <Location /svn/svnrepos>
     DAV svn
     SVNPath c:/svnrepos
  After adding above line, when I tried to restart Apache2 service, I got the following error..
             The Apache2 service terminated with service-specific error 1.
  Not sure what to do in this scenario. Any clue will be highly appreciated!

  Yahoo! Messenger with Voice. Make PC-to-Phone Calls to the US (and 30+ countries) for 2/min or less. Try to start the apache service manually from a command line. If you open up your services and then open the Apache service you should be able to see the command it is trying to run. Copy that and paste it into a command prompt. You should get better detail there.

A guess - check that your mod_dav_svn.so file really does exist. If so, is it the right version for the Apache version you are using?

Depending on how closely you followed the document, I think I might have your problem...

I <gag> installed Subversion on Windows </gag> and found that if you change the reference for the Apache SVN modules from their location in the Subversion folder, I got the same error as you. If you take the standard installation from the Subversion installation wizard, there is an option to modify the Apache configuration automatically. I chose this configuration as well, and the system starts without any problems with the module being referenced in the Subversion folder.

Without being a builder, I am going to say there is a dependency on some of the .dll files in there...

Give that a go - change your httpd.conf to point to the Subversion program folder.

LoadModule dav_svn_module "C:/Program Files/Subversion/bin/mod_dav_svn.so"
LoadModule authz_svn_module "C:/Program Files/Subversion/bin/mod_authz_svn.so"
