Forgive me, im new at subversion. We just moved offices and the inner IP
address of the server that holds our subversion has changed from
xxx.xx.32.xx to xxx.xx.34.xx . Now when any of us try to connect to the svn
(via tortoiseSVN) we get the following errors:
PROPFIOND request failed on '/svn/development'
PROPFIND of '/svn/development': could not connect to server
So I figure something has happened due to the IP address change, how can I
fix this? Changing the IP address back is not an option.
I'm not well versed in using Apache with Subversion, but I have hit similar
issues in the past. "Could not connect to server" suggests that this isn't
a Subversion issue, but something else. I'd suggest the following:
Make sure that your Apache configuration is set up to listen at the right
port on the new IP address.
If there's a firewall on the server, make sure the port you use is open. It
looks like port 81 is the one you are using, and it might be closed.
Try using a port number greater than 1024. This is a stretch, but might be
I can't find what OS you are on, but if you have Security Enhanced Linux in
enforcing mode, it can also play havoc with your web server. On Red Hat and
Fedora, it's called SELinux, other distros might have different names.
I hope this will help. Erik
