Trouble configuring Apache with SVN

Hi All,

Recently a Trojan took down our server, so I have had to reinstall SVN (we
have backups of our repository data, so no worries there).

I successfully installed SVN with no problem. I've also installed Apache 2
and configured SSL for the secure portion of our website.

But I have not been able to configure SVN to work properly.

I have added the following lines to my httpd.conf:

<Location /svn>
DAV svn
SVNListParentPath on
SVNParentPath E:\SVN
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Subversion repositories"
AuthUserFile "C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\passwd\passwd"
Require valid-user

C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\passwd\passwd is the same file used
for authentication for the secure portion of the website. I can get into
the secure portion of the website, but when I enter the user name and
password when trying to relocate my local repository, it is rejected. Can
anyone explain why this is happening?

Also, is there a way that I can force SVN to accept only secure
connections. Right now, it seems to accept both http and https connections.
