Okay, please take a step back and look around for any missing clues on
your system (we cannot do that from here).

If I summarize correctly, you still get errors, in the httpd error
log, with "Failed to load the AuthzSVNAccessFile: Can't open file '/
var/www/svn/users-access-file': No such file or directory", even
though you removed any reference of /var/www/svn/users-access-file
from your httpd configuration (and restarted httpd).

Clearly there must be some mixup. Apache httpd or Subversion will not
guess that filename out of thin air, and try to access it out of their
own initiative. There must be some remaining reference. It's up to you
to find it. Check for other conf files that may be involved in your
httpd configuration (one conf file can import another etc.). Perhaps
you can grep around a bit.
