Re: Apache+mod_dav_svn gives me "Could not read status line" on COPY requests

Just wanted to let everybody know how this problem got solved:
While looking at "ps aux | grep apache" I saw, that Apache was crashing
when those requests came in. I started debugging with gdb, but thought
I'd better install the mpm-prefork version (was using mpm-worker before)
of Apache to make things easier.
After that it suddenly started working...

Never knew that mod_dav_svn had problems with a threaded Apache.
