Well, I did some playing around and I think I managed to disable SSL.
I did: "a2dissite ssl" and "atdismod ssl" and nothing else. Apache
seemed to restart fine.

I then went to my windows machine again and did this from the command line:

C:\>svn ls http://server/svn/personal
Authentication realm: <http://server:80> Subversion Repository
Password for 'MrDoomMaster': **************
Authentication realm: <http://server:80> Subversion Repository
Username: robert
Password for 'robert': **************
svn: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

As you can see from above, I'm still getting the same error message,
but I got a little further before it happened. SSL should be disabled,
right? I don't know where it's getting "MrDoomMaster" from, as I only
setup "robert" as a user in /etc/apache2/dav_svn.passwd.
