I'm trying to setup a subversion repository without apache (my webserver is using Lighttpd) Is there anyway I can do that?

Sure - you can use one of two access methods that don't rely on apache. The first is using the included svnserve daemon. The other option is to use svn+ssh.

One additional comment - if you need a web repository viewer, you can look into ViewVC, which I believe can run under lighttpd. – EEAA Oct 7 '09 at 13:49
Yeah I'm going to use trac for vewing, do you now if it's possible to checkout without SSH? – mnml Oct 12 '09 at 17:58
