I am looking for a hosting server that I can do a checkout from a svn repository hosted somewhere else.

I also would like to be able to make changes to the apache2/httpd.conf

Would I be able to do this with a hosting account (with say 1 node to prototype with).

If no, what is a hosting account that would allow this?

Normally a VPS from a place like gives you full root control. It is like having a real physical server in the room with you just without the noise.

You can login to it with SSH and what not and sudo to root or su - (depending on the OS) so what you want to do should not be a problem at all.
