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

I have configured mod_dav_svn 1.8.9 on FreeBSD along with WebSVN 2.3.3 this way:

<Location /repos/svn>
    DAV svn
    SVNParentPath /usr/local/svn/repos
    SVNListParentPath On
    SVNPathAuthz Off

Alias /repos/websvn "/usr/local/www/websvn"
<Directory "/usr/local/www/websvn">
    Order Allow,Deny
    Allow from all
    Options FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    DirectoryIndex wsvn.php

While this works well, I do not understand the full meaning of MultiViews. As far as I understood that feature, both the repos and the WebSVN browser should be accesible through one URL, shouldn't they?

If not, WebSVN is generating me the following URL: http://www.example.com/repos/websvn/wsvn/<repo>

How do I get rid of that wsvn subpath? The config.php does not help much.
