New Directory Commit Failure

Hello SVN community,

I am responsible for an SVN server that has been running without issue
for over five years. The problem just started happening this morning
out of the blue. I’ve got a fairly standard setup with apache (2.2.31),
dav svn, and local passwd/authz files for authentication/access
control. I can’t think of a single thing that has changed recently, so
I’m at a complete loss as to how I might fix it.

The problem is when I add and commit a new directory, I get the
following error:

Commit failed (details follow):
Changing directory '/Users/casey/Documents/repo/trunk/docroot/new-dir'
is forbidden by the server
Access to
'/!svn/wrk/cfa651e5-5850-4325-a441-1b5f8f37b3ea/trunk/docroot/new-dir'
forbidden

Committing new or modified files works just fine. I can clone a
directory with a new name and commit that. I can also commit deletes of
directories. The problem is just with committing new directories. I
have also tried logging in to the server via Terminal and committing
new folders directly on the server filesystem itself, and that does in
fact work, so I believe the issue is with apache.

In an attempt to reduce possible permission issues, I tried updating my
authz file to the following:

[/]
* = rw

I have tried connecting with different clients, and they all receive
the same error message.

Running up against this issue that I can’t find an answer to, I created
an account here hoping someone might have some insight. Being new and
not knowing how this list works exactly, I would appreciate being CC’d
on any replies. Thanks for the help.
