Did you install mod_dav_svn (Apach httpd module)
or the standalone svnserve?

If it is mod_dav_svn, just make sure that Apache httpd is started automatically:
sudo /sbin/chkconfig httpd on
(or via System > Administration > Services if you have the UI).
I never used seriously the the standalone svnserve, but I guess you
would have to start it explicitly either by:
- adding the command in /etc/rc.local (called by each reboot, but may
be not so clean?)
- write your own script under /etc/init.d
I would definitely suggest to use it as an httpd module (much easier
It requires a little Apache config though:
(note that this link is for SVN 1.5, but the config is the same for
SVN 1.4, which is the one provided by CentOS base)
