RE: Cannot commit using Apache Virtual Hosts

Interestingly enough to start with I had no DocumentRoot entry
at all. I only added it based on some website or other I read
about setting this up. Altering as suggested has had no
effect. Can still only commit once on a working copy.

Had a read of the link you provided. Makes sense. However
the exact same set of alterations and commits work fine via
the alternate URL. All I am doing is opening the only file
in the repository, adding a line, closing and commiting.
Then doing it again. From http://server/svn it works,
from http://svn it fails on the second and subsequent
submits. I can't see any logic in it.

The fact that you're the only user of the repository doesn't mean you
can't run into the "out-of-date" message. Read about mixed-revision
working copies:


However, looking at your config again, I see something you should

If /var/svn-repos/research is where your repository is, then your
DocumentRoot should point to anywhere *except* that location. /var/
empty for example would be a good choice (assuming your system has an
empty directory /var/empty), since the entire URL space is taken by
your repository anyway.
