Issue Understanding Permissioning, SVN, Apache2, etc.

From: James Crosson <James_at_cecilrep.com>

I've installed mod_dav_svn in apache2 and setup httpd.conf to reference my
repository. I am trying to test that I can checkout a project using the

I have verified that apache is running, that httpd.conf has location
setup, mod_dav_svn is installed correctly, and that my repository is
correct (As I can checkout using the file:///url).

The issue I am having is as follows:
svn co http://localhost/repository/project
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/repository/project'
svn: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

I have seen this problem extensively on the net and it is most usually a
permissions issue. Both apache and SVN are installed by root and I just
today changed their group memberships all to SVN to try and resolve it.
Unfortunately it does not resolve anything. If I ping the server is works
fine. The error log in apache shows:

[Mon Apr 23 16:05:56 2007] [error] [client] Could not open the
requested SVN filesystem [500, #2]

Would somebody be able to help a newbie out!
