Yes - it's a completely different question from what most people
probably read your original post as.

What you want to do is to have a post-commit hook script which updates
the copy of the project which Apache serves. You can either make the
directory which Apache is serving a working copy, and run svn update
against it, or perform an export each time. The working copy will be
more efficient as far as updating goes (only changes will have to get
copied), but you'll want to restrict access to directories named .svn
via .htaccess or your httpd.conf.

This comes up pretty regularly on this list and other svn-related
discussion venues, a couple quick searches should turn up previous
