That's not the right http URL to use. See below:

With this Location directive, you've declared that the URL shall be

> # Set this to the path to your repository
> SVNPath /var/svn/ibizsim01

And here is where you've specified what repository that URL maps to
in the filesystem.

So you want

svn co http://localhost/svn ./a --username ullal
