Where is the repository created on disk?

***** Yes. It's on a Microsoft LAN drive.

Via what protocol are you able to access it successfully? file:///?
svn://? http://?

****** file:/// Should I be able to access the repos from the command line
using http?

Your Apache seems to be configured to look for the repository h:\svn.
Is that where the repository is? (You at one point ran "svnadmin
create h:\svn"?)

****** Yes. And yes.

If so, does Apache have permission to read it?

****** That I'll need a hand with. Is that via file permissions? Or in

Or is your repository in fact in a directory inside h:\svn, like h:
\svn\foo (you ran "svnadmin create h:\svn\foo")? If so, and you want
to have several repositories, then you will want to configure Apache
with SVNParentPath h:\svn, not SVNPath h:\svn.

****** It's in the directory, h:\svn. The LAN's my only method of backing
up the repos.

FYI: I believe forward slashes are preferred in Apache configuration
files, even when specifying Windows paths. Not that that's probably
relevant to the current problem...

****** Done.
