Hi! I'm trying to install SVN on a latest version of CentOS (5.3). I just did: yum install subversion yum install mod_dav_svn Then i edited /etc/httpd/conf.d/subversion.conf and here is the content: ======================== <Location /svn> DAV svn SVNParentPath /var/www/svn # Limit write permission to list of valid users. <LimitExcept GET PROPFIND OPTIONS REPORT> # Require SSL connection for password protection. # SSLRequireSSL AuthType Basic AuthName "SVN 1" AuthUserFile /etc/svn/svn-auth-conf Require valid-user </LimitExcept> </Location> After, i did: ============= mkdir -p //var/www/svn/applitv svnadmin create /var/www/svn/applitv svn mkdir file://localhost/var/www/svn/applitv/trunk -m "create" svn mkdir file://localhost/var/www/svn/applitv/branches -m "create" svn mkdir file://localhost/var/www/svn/applitv/tags -m "create" chown -R apache:apache /var/www/svn Finally, i created the AUTH file: ================================= htpasswd -cm /etc/svn/svn-auth-conf user1 htpasswd -m /etc/svn/svn-auth-conf user2 I use the following URL to connect to the server: ================================================= http://10.0.4.32/svn/applitv And i receive the following response: ===================================== This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below. − <D:error> <C:error/> <m:human-readable errcode="13"> Could not open the requested SVN filesystem </m:human-readable> </D:error> In the log /etc/httpd/conf.d/subversion.conf, i have: ===================================================== [Sun Oct 11 15:48:39 2009] [error] [client 10.0.2.98] (20014)Internal error: Can't open file '/var/www/svn/applitv/format': Permission denied [Sun Oct 11 15:48:39 2009] [error] [client 10.0.2.98] Could not fetch resource information.

[403, #190001] What i find very strange is this: ================================= [root at svn mnt]# ll /var/www/svn/applitv/format -r--r--r-- 1 apache apache 2 Oct 11 11:40 /var/www/svn/applitv/format The "format" file (which contains the value "5") is readable. I searched a lot on Google but i still can't figure out what's going on. Any help would be appreciated!
