Apache and SVN subdirectories

Is there a way to have apache/svn support multiple subdirectories under one

Let me explain;


I've got Apache and SVN running and I want multiple directories that will
contain multiple repositories. For example, my httpd.conf contains this:

    <Location /svn>

        Dav svn

        SVNParentPath D:\Repositories


        AuthType Basic

        AuthName " Repositories"

        AuthUserFile D:\Configuration\Security\svn.passwd

        Require valid-user



At the path on my PC (D:\Repositories) I've got multiple subdirectories, eg.
"Archive_1", "Archive_2" and "Current"

Thus having this directory tree:





I want to create repositories at these paths. So I execute:

svnadmin create D:\Repositories\Current\Repo_v02

svnadmin create D:\Repositories\ Archive_2\Repo_v01



All is fine so far. But whenever I want to do a checkout or whatever using
the URL, it fails:

svn checkout http://srv001/svn/Current/Repo_v02

(svn: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem) Also browsing the
repository using internet explorer fails, giving a new entry in my apache
error log:


[Tue Mar 18 20:33:58 2008] [error] [client] (20014)Error
string not specified yet: Can't open file
'D:\\Repositories\\Current\\format': The system cannot find the file


So is there a way to configure SVN/Apache in a way to support this, without
having to define every subdirectory (D:\Repositories\Current, etc.) in the


Thanks in advance.


Kind regards,

Floris van der Ploeg
