We have a Windows server running Apache 2.2. It used to have SlikSVN 1.8.x installed and we load the SVN module from httpd.conf:
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
We recently upgraded SlikSVN to 1.9.4, I did not have the idea to reboot the server after the upgrade, as everything was apparently working fine.
Now the server was rebooted today, and now Apache service won't start. Event log reports:
The Apache service named reported the following error: >>> httpd.exe: Syntax error on line 130 of D:/web_server/apache/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load D:/web_server/apache/modules/mod_dav_svn.so into server: The Apache service named n\x92est pas une application Win32 valide. .
Any idea what's happening?
- Is that supposed to work and could mod_dav_svn.so file be simply corrupted?
- Is Apache 2.2's mod_dav_svn.so be incompatible with SVN 1.9 and require SVN 1.8? Then what should I do?
- Upgrade Apache to a more recent version (how to know which one will be compatible with the SVN version I use)?
- Can I get a new version of mod_dav_svn.so supporting SVN 1.9 and compatible with Apache 2.2? Because the server runs old Redmine services and too and I'm afraid Apache upgrade won't be obvious...
