Thanks for your reply, Stanley.

I've just tried and I had had the same error:

chgrp -R apache ./efg-repo/

chgrp: changing group of `./efg-repo/dav': Permission denied
chgrp: changing group of `./efg-repo/locks/db.lock': Permission denied
chgrp: changing group of `./efg-repo/locks/.db.lock.swp': Permission denied
chgrp: changing group of `./efg-repo/locks/.db.lock.swo': Permission denied
chgrp: changing group of `./efg-repo/locks': Permission denied
chgrp: changing group of `./efg-repo/': Permission denied

does It only seem an administrative issue???
