Re: Cannot get SVN 1.5 HTTPS server working...

Hi Robert,

it's best to always do one step at a time :-)

First step: install Apache, make sure it works
Second step: Install Subversion in Apache, make sure it works!!!
THIRD step: configure Apache for SSL, make sure it works
FOURTH step: test subversion via SSL

As far as I can tell from your post, you're trying everything at once.
You can do that when you've done everything successfully a couple of
times and know where to look for problems.

 From this post and your other question, it looks like you're not
experienced with SVN+Apache yet, so I'd recommend smaller steps.

Please let us know if the second step works, your problem does not look
related to SSL at all...

IF Subversion over HTTP (port 80) works and it's really a HTTPS-problem,
you might have to configure Subversion in your "HTTPS"-(virtual)-host.

Depending on your Apache configuration, the https-host-configuration can
be independent from the http-host.
A lot has changed in Apache 2.2 compared to Apache 2.0 - which version
are you using?
