FAQ
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 repositoriesI made a new user entry in the two files listed above with full admin rightsI restarted httpd and rebooted the serverI made sure the httpd processes were running using apache as userAnd I've run out of ideas. Has anyone else seen this before?

    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
    user
    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.
