Re: Problem committing to a write-thru proxy

I tried it, and it's not working, but since I'm not very familiar with
Apache, maybe I didn't do it properly.

In my httpd I un-commented these lines:

LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

I then added the rewrite directives inside the <Location /svn> element. Is
this the correct place?

I am getting this error, when I try to commit a change from my local working
copy to the SVN proxy:

Error: Commit failed (details follow):
Error: Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to
Error: request for '/svn/la/!svn/ver/11046/Projects/Core/trunk/build.xml'

Thanks again,
