RE: question re: apache permissions and svn

I didn't realize that faq was there; however, that was what the context was
to start with. Have you (or anyone else) used that type successfully?

I'm getting the same error message after changing to the reference context.

Is there something additional I have to do? Like, maybe set some switch in
selinux itself?

thanks
