Article on installing Subversion w Apache needs updating

Post by Anders_W » 20 Oct 2011, 14:13

Greetings!

It seems that the How-to and Wiki page on installing Subversion with Apache needs to be updated.

When following the description, Apache refuses to start:
# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Syntax error on line 16 of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/dav_svn.conf:
DAV not allowed here
Action 'configtest' failed.
It seems that the current version of Apache required a different method for authentication.

The HowTo is written (and verified) for a Bubba 2. Until the update to Debian squeeze I can not test that.
However are you sure it doesn't work?
To me it looks like you have missed the location tags in the dav_svn.conf file. Check that line 13 and last line of the file looks like in my example. Uncomment if necessary.
