Hi all;

were finally rolling our code into subversion, however I'm having an access

Here's what I've done:

1) created a new linux user svnuser (seemed appropriate to have him own the

2) created a directory /stage/svn (as svnuser)

3) created the repo :
$ cd /stage/svn
$ svnadmin create dba

4) imported files
(at this point I found I could not add files as another user so I changed perms
on the /stage/svn dir)
# chown -R a+rw /stage/svn
$ cd /home/postgres/svn (where the dbatools dir is - that has our code)
$ svn import dbatools file:///stage/svn/db
Adding dbatools/sql
Adding dbatools/sql/vac_tabs.sql
Adding dbatools/sql/vac_qry.sql
Adding dbatools/sql/vac_summary_rpt.sql
Adding dbatools/sql/vac_density_rpt.sql
Adding dbatools/tmp
Adding dbatools/log
Adding dbatools/ddl
Adding dbatools/ddl/crt_dbmon_ddl.sql
Adding dbatools/html
Adding dbatools/bin
Adding ...

5) installed mod_dav_svn via yum

6) added a new conf file to apache (in /etc/httpd/conf.d)
$ cd /etc/httpd/conf.d
$ cat svn.conf

<Location /svn>
        DAV svn
        SVNPath /stage/svn

7) restarted apache
# service httpd restart

8) tried to do a checkout from another server on the network (the svn box is
[devbox]: $ cd /dev/sandbox
[devbox]: $ svn checkout
svn: OPTIONS of '': 200 OK (

[devbox]: $ svn checkout
svn: OPTIONS of '': 200 OK (

Both attempts above give me some feedback but do not checkout the repository
for me.

Thoughts? what did I miss?

Thanks in advance
