It is, however, definitely a necessary step.

You showed is the path "/var/svn/repositories/cruisecontrol/conf/
svnserve.conf". This shows me that inside the directory /var/svn/
repositories, you have a repository called cruisecontrol. You must
either use:

SVNPath /var/svn/repositories/cruisecontrol

or if you have several repositories under /var/svn/repositories that
you would like to serve with the same authorization files, then you
must use:

SVNParentPath /var/svn/repositories

Based on your <Location /svn> directive, that's not a correct URL for
your repositories. If you're using SVNPath pointing to a single
repository, then the correct URL would be:


If you're using SVNParentPath pointing to a directory containing
repositories, then the correct URL would be:
