This is the error that returns the client(versionsapp) when i try to commit.

Server sent unexpected return value (500 Internal Server Error) in response to POST request for '/svn/ultima_prueba/!svn/me'

I appreciated any help.

The config:

<Location /svn>
  DAV svn
  SVNParentPath /media/nbserver/nbkup/svn
  SVNListParentPath on
  AuthType Basic
  AuthName "Subversion Repository"
  AuthUserFile /media/nbserver/nbkup/passwd
  Require valid-user

[Tue Mar 19 11:57:40 2013] [error] [client ip] Can't open file '/media/nbserver/nbkup/svn/svn_local/db/txn-current-lock': Permission denied  [500, #13]

    Check and fix permissions for repo. And add more info to question: config, protocol, output of ls repository-side, result of svn ls – Lazy Badger Mar 19 '13 at 9:18

It seems it was an issue about permissions. I just update the group and owner and change chmod.

chown -R www-data:www-data *
chmod -R 770 *

The result was that now i can commit, create and update projects. Thanks to all that help me.
