I have used Subversion under Windows with the file scheme for many
years. I now want to shift to a Ubuntu Linux server-based Subversion
with the http scheme. I have created the repository ibizsim01 under
/var/svn and have granted appropriate ownership www-data:svn and rights
770 and g+rws on /var/svn. I can start svnserve and use the svn scheme
without any problem. However when I try to use the http scheme either
locally on the server or from a remote host, I get the following error
svn co http://localhost/var/svn/ibizsim01 ./a --username ullal
svn: PROPFIND request failed on 'var/svn/ibizsim01'
svn: PROPFIND of '/var/svn/ibizsim01': 405 Method Not Allowed
In both cases there is no question of a proxy coming in the way.
My /etc/apache2/mods-available/dav_svn.conf is as follows:
# dav_svn.conf - Example Subversion/Apache configuration
# For details and further options see the Apache user manual and
# the Subversion book.
# <Location URL> ... </Location>
# URL controls how the repository appears to the outside world.
# In this example clients access the repository as http://hostname/svn/
# Uncomment this to enable the repository,
# Set this to the path to your repository
# The following allows for basic http authentication. Basic
# should not be considered secure for any particularly rigorous
# to create a passwd file
# # rm -f /etc/apache2/dav_svn.passwd
# # htpasswd2 -c /etc/apache2/dav_svn.passwd dwhedon
# New password:

# Adding password for user dwhedon
# Uncomment the following 3 lines to enable Basic Authentication
AuthName "Subversion Repository"
# Uncomment the following line to enable Authz Authentication
# AuthzSVNAccessFile /etc/apache2/dav_svn.authz
# The following three lines allow anonymous read, but make
# committers authenticate themselves.
