It looks like you are using the standard location for the svnserve
password file as the location for the Apache password file. I suspect
you are trying to use as svnserve password file which has the wrong
format for Apache; you need to use a file created using htpasswd.

You are using a single password file for all repositories in /svnrepos
but you have chosen to put that single file inside the /svnrepos/test1
repository. That can work but is a bit odd.
