Hi all,

I have a repo at /home/svn. It used to contain only projects of my
company such as

I decided to use the same repo for projects I develop for clients so
split it like so. (not two repos but two paths in one)


The clientcompany side works fine but one of my company projects which
was dormant for a while gives me errors. I thought it might be because
it may have been checked out pre-split, so I did a svn co (which works
fine) to a new working copy applied the new changes and tried to
commit but I get..

svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: OPTIONS request failed on '/svn'
svn: OPTIONS of '/svn': 403 Forbidden (http://mycompany.com)

I have setup only basic auth and am using dav_svn module. I generated
the passwords to
I am using dav_svn.authz to specify which user has r / w rights.

Some excerpts from the dav_svn.conf...
<Location /svn>

  DAV svn

  # Set this to the path to your repository
  SVNParentPath /home/svn

  # Uncomment the following 3 lines to enable Basic Authentication
  AuthType Basic
  AuthName "Subversion Repository"
  AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/dav_svn.passwd

  # Uncomment the following line to enable Authz Authentication
  AuthzSVNAccessFile /etc/apache2/dav_svn.authz

  # The following three lines allow anonymous read, but make
  # committers authenticate themselves.

  Require valid-user
  # </LimitExcept>


Any ideas why commits fail?
