Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have server controlled by Debian 6.0. I installed and configured redmine some time ago, and now configured svn server.

Now i'm trying to configure redmine to be able to view svn repository. URL is:

Connection is not working, log show this error:

Error parsing svn output: #<REXML::ParseException: No close tag for /lists/list>

Google says that its common error, and its possible to fix it by permamently accept of server certificate so i did it and nothing. Still dont work.

Later, i added

store-plaintext-passwords = no

in file


I did this (and cert accept) for both root and www-data users. Nothing helped, still got error in redmine

The entry or revision was not found in the repository.

What else i can do with it?

This is a bug in Redmine, IIRC. It doesn't handle self-signed certificates very well at all.

I ended up following the instructions here and got mine working. In short, create a directory for subversion to dump its configuration to, run it once manually, then edit the subversion_adapter.rb in redmine's lib/redmine/scm/adapters/ folder in order point it at that config directory. I didn't / couldn't follow those directions to the letter, I doubt you'll be able to either, so be prepared to go off-script if need be.
