They are the steps on my actual SVN server -- I have svnserve installed
on my laptop from a while back.

Server configuration:
Apache/2.2.4 (FreeBSD)
mod_ssl/2.2.4
OpenSSL/0.9.7e-p1
DAV/2
SVN/1.4.4
PHP/5.2.3 with Suhosin-Patch

If you need information on how I compiled SVN and created the
repositories, I'd be happy to provide them -- however, I did not use any
'extra' options, or patches, or such.

(Btw, if this matters, I have SVN served via HTTPS, not HTTP on Apache
2.2.4).
