Re: Problem when setting SVN by using Apache2

Thanks for your replys!

Then I did like you said:
>> sudo svnadmin create /var/svnroot/dummy

Then I change the owner:
>> sudo chown -R apache:apache /var/svnroot

Then I ran:
>> svn import dummy http://localhost:8088/svn/dummy/ -m "test"

But I got this error:
svn: Path 'http://localhost:8088/svn/dummy' already exists

BTW: I am using Berkeley DB as the storage but the FS. Does this have
anything to do with this?
