I have just spent a day solving this problem - was on the verge of
I was trying to use svnsync to mirror a repository between two Apache
I could initialise the empty repository fine, by running "svnsync init
--- svnsync: REPORT request failed on 'http://main-server/svn/repo' svnsync: REPORT of 'http://main-server/svn/repo': 200 OK (http://main-server) --- Confusing error message, especially the "200 OK" success code. Anyway, the stupid thing that I had forgotten was to give 'svnowner' full write access to the destination repository *as* *a* *user* (access was being controlled using an AuthzSVNAccessFile). In fact, I don't think it had any write access at all. I'd remembered to give it read access to the source repository. I think what really slowed me down is that the error message makes it look as though the problem is with the *source* repository. regards, -- Jon Ashley This email is confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual to whom it is addressed.
