question re: apache permissions and svn

From: david chinn <dchinn_at_nwlink.com>

Hello:

 

I've set up a new box with an installation of fedora 7, apache and
subversion.

 

From a windows box, using Tortoise SVN, I can see the repositories I
migrated there.

 

However, I can't seem to do write operations to the server. for instance,
import into a new, test repository.

 

Error message from tortoise is:

 

            "Error Can't create directory
'/usr/local/svn/TestRepo/db/transactions/0-1.txn': Permission denied

 

Httpd runs as apache/apache (default), and I first tried just setting
ownership of /usr/local/TestRepo to that.

When that didn't work, I tried chmod -R 777 to the TestRepo. that didn't
work either.

 

I'm sure it's a really easy problem, but having been working mostly in
Windows, I'm stymied.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks
