I have a problem to correctly configure apache / subversion and mod_dav in openSUSE 11.2
I have setup a virtual host on my home server (because I need to access it from the Internet), that should be a subversion server.
The subversion root directory is the
I plan to use a separate directory for each project.
So, the svn tree will be
Apache serves the web pages (actually the directories) but since the documentroot and the SVN root are the same, it cannot handle the SVN repositories correctly.
So, I re-read the Setting up a Subversion server using Apache2 - openSUSE how-to and followed it’s suggestion. (Use a Location outside the document root)
Anyway, the problem is that I have a 404 error, which of course is normal, since there is no alias set for the /rep location I use.
The apache configuration is:
NameVirtualHost *:8080> <VirtualHost *:8080> ServerName svn.home ServerAdmin email@example.com DocumentRoot /srv/www #Alias /rep/ /srv/svn/repos/ <Location /rep > Allow from all Dav On SVNParentPath /srv/svn/repos SVNListParentPath On AuthType Digest AuthDigestAlgorithm MD5 AuthName "svnadmins" AuthDigestDomain / AuthDigestProvider file AuthUserFile /srv/www/.htpasswd Require valid-user </Location> ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/svn.error TransferLog /var/log/apache2/svn.access </VirtualHost>
So, without the Alias directive the http://server.home:8080/repos returns a 404 error and the log files say that the /srv/www/rep directory does not exists (correct).
If I set the Alias directive, then I have a forbidden (403) error, since no index file exists.
But, the most important thing is that the svn is not working. When I try to create a new directory with the svn command, I have the following error:
svn mkdir http://localhost:8080/rep/sites/test -m "Repository Creation" svn: Repository moved permanently to 'http://localhost:8080/rep/sites/'; please relocate
So, how do I correctly setup apache?
