  SVNListParentPath on
  SVNParentPath D:/SVN
  #SVNIndexXSLT "/svnindex.xsl"
  AuthType Basic
  AuthName "Subversion repositories"
  AuthUserFile passwd
  #AuthzSVNAccessFile svnaccessfile
  Require valid-user

In apache access.log I get the following: "GET /svn/ITWORX/ HTTP/1.1" 500

In apache error.log I get the following : [error] [client] Could

I'd appreciate it if anybody could help me overcome this problem as I tried
a lot to find a solution over the web with no luck. :(
