Are those 2 mods supposed to be the same, do the same jobs or am i missing the big picture. What I want to achieve is have my subversion repos accessible from the web and be able work on them. Shall I go for mod svn or dav?

svn is for version control - subversion

webdav is for web access on your files - no version control

To clarify, the dav_svn module does utilize WebDAV, but this is correct; mod_dav_svn is specifically for access to subversion repositories. – Shane Madden Apr 2 '11 at 0:12
So i setup svn as usual and install mod_dav to access the repos from the web, is that right? – afarazit Apr 2 '11 at 0:54 on how to do it on ubuntu - this is for a rpm based (fedora etc) – silviud Apr 2 '11 at 2:30
