On Fedora os, I have problem to access SVN Repo and commit via HTTP.

Here is my config file

/etc/httpd/conf.d/subversion.conf
LoadModule dav_svn_module     modules/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module   modules/mod_authz_svn.so
LoadModule dontdothat_module  modules/mod_dontdothat.so

<Location /svn>
   DAV svn
   SVNParentPath /var/www/svn
   SVNListParentPath On   
   SVNPathAuthz Off
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "myRepos"
   AuthUserFile /etc/svn-pass
   AuthzSVNAccessFile /etc/svn-authz   
   Require valid-user
</Location>

Error:

Share project was failed. svn: Can't open file '/var/www/svn/repo/db/txn-current-lock': Permission deniedsvn: MKACTIVITY of '/svn/repo/!svn/act/4b515a33-4801-0010-8d84-bddd16ee6e1b': 500 Internal Server Error (http://example.com:8080)

And here is the directory :

./repo/db: total 56K drwxr-sr-x. 6 apache apache 4.0K Sep  1 01:03 ./ drwxr-xr-x. 6 apache apache 4.0K Aug 30 23:20 ../

SELinux problem again

It's permission problem. But not "classic" read/write permissions of apache user, but selinux one.

Apache cannot write to files labeled as httpd_sys_content_t they can be only read by apache.

You have 2 possibilities:

label svn repository files as httpd_sys_content_rw_t:

   1- chcon -R -t httpd_sys_content_rw_t /path/to/your/svn/repo

set selinux boolean httpd_unified --> on

  2 - setsebool -P httpd_unified=1

Prefered 2nd possibility.
