Re: can access the repositry thru url in apache

   1. What OS version?
   2. Have you checked the Apache log files (for messages/errors)?
   3. Are the SVN Modules loading OK? (see #2)
   4. Where (in your file system) is the repository? The SVNPath points
   to the directory that HOLDs the repositories. For example, I use
   'c:\repos\svn' as a parent directory and create all repositories in there.
   'svnadmin create c:\repos\svn\ProjectFoo', 'svnadmin create
   c:\repos\svn\ProjectBar', so I'd point SVNPath to 'c:\repos\svn'.
   5. What user is Apache running as? Do they have read (and write?)
   access to the files holding the repository? NOTE: On Windows, is probably
   not the problem.
   6. From your SVNPath, you appear to be running a windows variant. If
   you install Apache _before_ installing Subversion (command line client), the
   svn cli will see Apache and install the .so files for you (at least it used
   to a long time ago..) [The modules must be in the correct place, or you
   must refer to them by explicit path]
   7. Did you RTFM? The manual is a good resource
