Thanks for the help.Well after making changes in the Path it seems to be working.
Q:- is the repository readable and writeable by the user the webserver runs under?
A:- The directory svn and the repository svn_repos has the following permissions
drwxrwx--- 3 root apache 4096 Dec 29 15:21 svn
drwxrwx--- 7 root apache 4096 Jan 2 16:54 svn_repos
Hope it won't create a problem.The apache is being run as user apache.
Could you please suggest some frontend which i can use for accessing the repository completely over http schema.I tried using svnview but it didn't work.The tar was placed under /usr/local/apache2/htdocs
and after untarring it the changes were made in distconfig.inc and was renamed to config.inc
$config->addRepository("Test", "Path/to/repository (/usr/local/svn/svn_repos)");
Could someone help with this too or suggest some frontend for svn which can be used to do everything that is usually done over command line.
thanks and regards

just to check the classic errors:
- is the repository readable and writeable by the user the webserver runs under?
- did you restart the webserver after applying the changes.
You might want to get everything up and running without authentication first and then add auth and other advanced features.
Detailed instructions are in the book (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.serverconfig.httpd.html#svn.serverconfig.httpd.basic). You might want to read those if you haven't done so.
That said: in your first mail you stated that your repository is at "/usr/local/svn/svn_repos/". Still you're pointing "SVNPath" to "/usr/local/svn" - if I read the docs properly, SVNPath *must* point to the repository, not to the parent directory.
The minimal configuration should then be:
SVNPath /usr/local/svn/svn_repos/ # path to the repository
With this you should be able to access your repository as "http://www.myname.com/svn";.
