Strange SVN + Apache Behaviour

From: Shad Sharma <shadanan_at_gmail.com>

Dear All,

I seem to be having some trouble with my installation of SVN + Apache.
I have been using SVN on my server without any problems, however, I
recently found it necessary to have an instance of SVN running for
several different virtual hosts. So, in order to support this, I
decided to install the SVN support into Apache via the mod_dav_svn.so

After having created my repository, I modified the httpd.conf
configuration file for the cargopartnersnetwork.com section as

<Directory /home/cpnadmin/cargopartnersnetwork.com/html>
Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride All
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/awstats /var/www/cgi-bin/awstats
Alias /awstats /var/www/html/awstats
Alias /myadmin /var/www/html/myadmin
ScriptAlias /mail /var/www/cgi-bin/openwebmail/openwebmail.pl
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/openwebmail /var/www/cgi-bin/openwebmail
Alias /openwebmail /var/www/html/openwebmail
ServerName cargopartnersnetwork.com
DocumentRoot /home/cpnadmin/cargopartnersnetwork.com/html
SuexecUserGroup cpnadmin cpnadmin
ServerAlias "www.cargopartnersnetwork.com"
ServerAdmin "shadanan_at_gmail.com"
ScriptAlias "/cgi-bin/" "/home/cpnadmin/cargopartnersnetwork.com/cgi-bin/"
CustomLog "/home/cpnadmin/cargopartnersnetwork.com/access_log" "combined"
ErrorLog "/home/cpnadmin/cargopartnersnetwork.com/error_log"
<Location /svn>
DAV svn
SVNPath /home/cpnadmin/cargopartnersnetwork.com/repos/
SecFilterRemove 9001
SecFilterRemove 300015
#AuthType Basic
#AuthName "Cargo Partners Network SVN repository"
#AuthUserFile /home/cpnadmin/cargopartnersnetwork.com/repos/conf/htpasswd
#Require valid-user

The server serves the repository at
http://cargopartnersnetwork.com/svn. I have disabled authentication
for the time being because I didn't want it to get in the way. I also
found that it was necessary to change some of the application firewall
rules via the SecFilterRemove directives.

If you browse to that location in a browser, it appears as though the
SVN service is working correctly. Checkout works perfectly. The issue
seems to pop up when you try to import a project, or in some way
modify the repository. I'll illustrate with a quick example by trying
to import a new file into the repository. From a terminal:

wolverine:~ shadanan$ mkdir Test
wolverine:~ shadanan$ cd Test
wolverine:Test shadanan$ ls
wolverine:Test shadanan$ svn co
http://cargopartnersnetwork.com/svn/CargoPartnersNetwork .
Checked out revision 1.
wolverine:Test shadanan$ ls
wolverine:Test shadanan$ echo "This is my test file" > testfile.txt
wolverine:Test shadanan$ ls
wolverine:Test shadanan$ cat testfile.txt
This is my test file
wolverine:Test shadanan$ svn add testfile.txt
A testfile.txt
wolverine:Test shadanan$ svn commit --editor-cmd vi
Adding testfile.txt
Transmitting file data .svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: PUT of '/svn/!svn/wrk/06795e77-6b02-4674-9390-e6cc7b561a40/CargoPartnersNetwork/testfile.txt':
403 Forbidden (http://cargopartnersnetwork.com)
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn: '/Users/shadanan/Test/svn-commit.2.tmp'
wolverine:Test shadanan$

If we look at the error_log file on the server we see this:
[Thu Mar 06 00:00:30 2008] [error] [client] client denied
by server configuration:

It's as though its trying access the folder from the public html
folder instead of the svn repository folder. I'm not sure why this is
happening. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
Shad Sharma
