RE: Moved to a new Subversion server....

Sorry for top posting (Outlook here)

Here my configurations that work for me. I'm using Apache 2.2.11, Subversion 1.6.4 and ViewVC 1.1.1

DocumentRoot "/usr/local/apache2/htdocs"
ScriptAlias /viewvc "/usr/local/viewvc/bin/cgi/viewvc.cgi"
<Directory "/usr/local/viewvc/bin/cgi/viewvc.cgi">
  AllowOverride None
  Options None
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all

The htdocs directory has only an index.html page

ln1sub01 root> ls -l /usr/local/apache2/htdocs
total 8
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 485 Aug 20 11:58 index.html
drwxrwxr-x 6 svnstat svn 4096 Aug 20 12:03 statsvn
/usr/local/viewvc is a link to /usr/local/viewvc-1.1.1 which is where I installed ViewVC 1.1.1

ln1sub01 root> ls -l /usr/local/
total 108
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12 Jun 18 15:27 viewvc -> viewvc-1.1.1
drwxr-xr-x 6 svn svn 4096 Aug 19 16:30 viewvc-1.1.1
It works pretty well for me.

I have attempted to set the Script Alias to various paths;
ScriptAlias /viewvc "/var/www/cgi-bin/"
ScriptAlias /viewvc /var/www/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi
ScriptAlias /viewvc /usr/local/viewvc-1.0.7/bin/cgi/viewvc.cgi

and I still get the same message in the error log:
[Mon Aug 31 14:49:01 2009] [error] [client] File does not exist: /var/www/html/viewvc

Why is it looking under /var/www/html?
Is the file, viewvc, that the error references the same as viewvc.cgi? If so why does it not include the .cgi suffix in the error message?

Does anyone have an httpd.conf file example, with viewvc configured, that I can take a look at?
