Currently my location section is as follows:

#<Location /svn>
# DAV svn
# SVNParentPath d:\Repos
<Location /svn>
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath D:\Repos
        SVNListParentPath On
# Require valid-user
# AuthType Basic
# AuthName "Subversion repository"
# AuthUserFile D:\Repos\password-file

Is there another section that you need?
