I looked at this page and found the passage:

" Quick sanity check:

    If you just want to see what your repository looks like when seen
    through ViewVC, type:

       $ bin/standalone.py -r /PATH/TO/REPOSITORY

    This will start a tiny ViewVC server at
http://localhost:49152/viewvc/,
    to which you can connect with your browser."

So I tried it on my Ubuntu box:

~$ /usr/lib/viewvc/bin/standalone.py -r /var/lib/svn
server ready at http://localhost:49152/viewvc

Notice the "localhost" entry! This will be no good because the UBUNTU
Server 16.04.3 does not have a GUI in which to run a web browser.

So I tried this instead (engineering-lx is the DNS name of my Ubuntu
test server):

http://engineering-lx:49152/viewvc

But it just resulted in a "Unable to connect" error in FireFox.

I can reach the svn via Apache fine though:
http://engineering-lx/svn/pc/

But no sign of viewvc for Subversion...
Maybe the tiny server is not connected to the eth0 public address?
Localhost seems suspicious to me.
