      • Hi gb,

        Sounds like some configuration error. Please post your subversion.conf file content. Do you have any other config for subversion or svn path?

        Try to check out your repository on some test directory, like following:

        
        mkdir /tmp/testrepo
        cd /tmp/testrepo
        
        svn co http://localhost/svn/testrepo/ .
        

        Is this working ok?

      LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
      LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so

      DAV svn
      SVNParentPath /var/www/svn

        • Hi Parikshit Tiwari,

          Try following instead:

          
          chcon -h system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t /var/www/svn/testrepo
          chcon -R -h apache:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t /var/www/svn/testrepo/*
          

          Looks like some reason you don’t have user or/and role…is this working for you?

    10. Perfect tutorial everything works!
      One thing is missing:
      – before launching http://localhost/svn/testrepo in the browser apache webserver must be started
      /etc/init.d/httpd start

      Thanks for the tutorial!

    11. Good guide, I can connect locally, however I cannot connect to the server from a different computer.

      I’ve added rules to the firewall config (and even tried disabling the firewall) however I still can’t reach the server from another system.

        Could you tell more specific are you using command line or are you using some graphical client?

      I am not using a AuthzSVNAccessFile

      • Hi ad,

        Could you post output of following commands:

        
        ls -la /path/to/svn/wvsrepo
        
        ls -la /path/to/svn

    14. Nice one, followed this one,
      But after the “step 5. Create and configure SVN repository” please add the apache restart command. I know you do know this.
      service httpd restart

      I followed this one and had a working SVN repo.. Thanks..

          I always keep following your linux based tutorials and articles…
          Do you have anything about Samba Server.? I have a great interest in it.

          • Thanks Aneek! :)

            Nice to hear that you follow my Linux based tutorials and articles! ;)

            I don’t have anything about Samba Server, because I don’t use Samba and I don’t have any Windows machines… :) But if you have some knowledge about Samba you can of course share it with us. :)

    15. I have followed your tutorial to the letter however when I navigate to the repository via a web browser it does not prompt me for a password.

      • Hi Brian,

        Try to restart apache (as Aneek recommend) with following command:

        
        /etc/init.d/httpd restart
        ## OR ##
        service httpd restart
        

        If it doesn’t help, then please let me know?
