I followed this article ( to setup my SVN server on OS X Server 10.6.2. I'm trying to use the web based service instead of svn+ssh.

The problem is when I get to the step to change the confi file, there is no actual tag. It's a tag. So I assumed that was fine and made the adjustments to it as the article recommends. I then change DAV Off to DAV svn.

Whenever I reset the server and try accessing the server address I get a server error.

It's very, very annoying!
