I was hesitant to write this, I thought I am doing something wrong, but
after re-checking everything again and again, I've decided to post...

I have a Windows XP Pro machine with Apache 2.2.4 and I am trying to
install Subversion 1.4.4, the version compiled against Apache 2.2.4.

Here is all that I've done so far:

1) Installed Apache 2.2.4.
2) Retrieved svn-win32-1.4.4.zip from
This is the version built against Apache 2.2.x, according to the site.
3) Unzipped it to c:\svn. Just to check, I looked in README.txt: It
explicitly says it was built against Apache 2.2.4 (exactly the version
I'm using).
4) Edited httpd.conf and added the following two lines:

LoadModule dav_svn_module c:\svn\bin\mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module c:\svn\bin\mod_authz_svn.so

If I try to start the apache2 service:

net start apache2

I get the following error:

The Apache2 service could not be started.
A service specific error occurred: 1.
More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3547.

The Application Event Log shows the following error:

The Apache service named reported the following error:
>>> httpd.exe: Syntax error on line 491 of C:/Program Files/Apache
Software Foundation/Apache2.2/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load
C:/svn/bin/mod_dav_svn.so into server: The specified module could not be

Did anybody try to set up version 1.4.4 with apache 2.2.4? I noticed
that the installation documentation is outdated (it refers to Apache
2.2.4 as a "future" version of Apache). :)

Thank you in advance for the help.
