It is resolved. I had to rebuild svn using the apr and apr-util in httpd-2.2.3. Thanks for the help.

I think the book is fine, just my fault. I rushed through too quickly and got mixed up with the SVNPath and SVNParentPath steps. However now I got a different error. The httpd.conf is still the same.

So, decide: Do you want to have multiple repositories, or a single one? If multiple, remove the contents of /usr/local/svnroot and create multiple repositories inside it: cd /usr/local/svnroot rm -rf * svnadmin create repo1 svnadmin create repo2 etc. On the other hand, if you want a single repository, change SVNParentPath in your apache conf to SVNPath. How did you decide that you should use SVNParentPath for a single repository? Many people write to this list having made this same mistake, and if there's some tutorial out there that's suggesting this, or something unclear in the book, I'd like to know where it is so we can get it corrected so others don't have the same problem. --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: users-unsubscribe_at_subversion.tigris.org For additional commands, e-mail: users-help_at_subversion.tigris.org
