I've had a repo that I would access, using TortoiseSVN, from only the same computer on which the Subversion win32 service was running, and it's been working for a while now. I decided to try to set up mod_dav_svn to be able to get at it from elsewhere. When I try to access it, I get this error in the browser:
<D:error> <C:error/> <m:human-readable errcode="165005"> Could not open the requested SVN filesystem </m:human-readable> </D:error>
…and these errors in the log:
(20014)Internal error: Expected repository format '3' or '5'; found format '9' Could not fetch resource information. [500, #0] Could not open the requested SVN filesystem [500, #165005] Could not open the requested SVN filesystem [500, #165005]
Here's what's in my .conf:
LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so
DAV svn SVNPath e:/dev/.svn
I put the /.svn because before I did that, I was getting the same error text on the client (but with code 720002) and the log showed Apache was looking for e:/dev/format, which doesn't exist, but e:/dev/.svn/format does.
I read this, and noticing that my subversion was 1.5.1 and 1.5.5 was out, and that I had upgraded TortoiseSVN recently, I thought that maybe there was some incompatibility (this may not make sense, I don't know how it works exactly.) So I downloaded 1.5.5, stopped the service, copied the DLLs and EXEs overtop, restarted the service, copied the new .so files to Apache's modules directory, and restarted httpd. No luck.
Any suggestions? This particular 'format 9' thing seems to be rare…
