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
