I hope someone can help me with this b/c I'm stumped... I had set up
an svn repository a while ago with an apache/webdav front end using
the default centos packages. For some reason this morning it stopped
working for me - it would give me a 403 error. I suppose the problem
is with Apache and not svn.

So far I've checked the following:
* I use a couple of files called svn_htpasswd_file (for
userids/password hashes) and svn_auth_file (users, groups and
permissions) - I verified the files were still apache:apache
and were user-readable
* Just for grins I ran "chown -R apache:apache" on my repository
home directory and all repositories
* I made a new user entry in the two files listed above with
full admin rights
* I restarted httpd and rebooted the server
* I made sure the httpd processes were running using apache as
And I've run out of ideas. Has anyone else seen this before?
Check all recently modified system logs.
If you have any virtual hosts configured
try to access you repository with a dot address.
Check and restore selinux context of your repo files if needed.
Try to access any of the subprojects under /repos directly.
to see if it makes any difference.
