svn came installed on my RHEL5 box and I am working on configuring the system for use with Apache.
I am using the following tutorial: http://www.howtoforge.com/apache_subversion_repository_p2
Everything seemed OK (no errors) until the section "Setting up the initial repository layout:". When issuing the third command:
svn import /tmp/subversion-layout/ http://127.0.0.1/subversion/
The system returned the following error:
[user@myserver directory]# svn import -m /tmp/svnmessage /tmp/subversion-layout/ http://127.0.0.1/subversion/
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/subversion'
svn: PROPFIND of '/subversion': 405 Method Not Allowed (http://127.0.0.1
I did not restart apache before issing the svn import command - is that necessary? Also, I created all of the directories as root. Would that cause this problem?
