The answer to Mr. Eichler's question (and mine) is:
"413 Request Entity Too Large" problem can be solved by moving
SSLVerifyClient from the directory level up to the virtual host level as
found in Apache bug 39154,

Subject: 413 Request Entity Too Large


I'm using the Apache SSL set-up with Subversion and requiring client
certificates in the WEB DAV set-up in Apache, but I get the "413 Request

Entity Too Large" error trying to check in files that >~150KB in size.
google'd the problem of course and found that I could try the
"LimitRequestBody 2147483647" directive in Apache, but it doesn't help.

I've put it in the global area and inside the Location directive and
both the main httpd.conf and the conf.d/ssl.conf files, but there seems
be no affect.

Is there anything else to try? ...
