I've installed subversion on our RHEL server and also installed dav_svn_module. My location tag in httpd.conf is as follows:
<Location /subversion> DAV svn SVNPath /subversion AuthType Basic AuthName "Subversion Repository" AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth.htpasswd Require valid-user </Location>
I've setup a password for svnuser with
htpasswd -c -m /etc/svn-auth.htpasswd svnuser
After restarting httpd, I try to checkout files from the subversion repository to my local machine and receive the error message above. Note that when I try to view the repository via HTTP, I recieve a HTTP 500 error as well.
The httpd error log shows the following entries:
error: Can't open file /subversion/format No such file or directory Could not fetch resource information [500, #0] Could not open the requested SVN filesystem [500, #2]
Note that /subversion/format doesn't exist. Not sure why error log is referencing this non-existent file??
What changes are needed to ensure I can both checkout/commit and authenticate via http?
