Subject [users@httpd] Problems with DavLockDB - file not found
Date Wed, 29 May 2013 14:22:15 GMT

We have upgraded our  Subversion installation with Apache 2.2.3on our RedHat 6.3   and uses
this for a maven-sites DAV location like this :

DavLockDB /tmp/davlockdb

<Location /maven-sites>
  Dav On

  AuthType Basic
  AuthName "Maven sites"
  AuthUserFile /home/csvn/mavensiteusers

  <LimitExcept GET OPTIONS>
  require valid-user


I have ensured that the davlockdb file is owned by User and Group running the Apache server,
and access bits are ok, however when trying to publish to /maven-sites we get an error in
the  apache logs :

[Wed May 29 16:14:01 2013] [error] [client] The locks could not be queried
for verification against a possible "If:" header.  [500, #0]
[Wed May 29 16:14:01 2013] [error] [client] (2)No such file or directory: Item
not found  [500, #15]

The strange thing here is that we have stopped Apache, removed the davlockdb file, restarted
and verifies that the file is created :

[root@edbdvap02 conf]# ls -l /tmp/davlockdb
-rwxr-xr-x 1 csvn csvn 12288 May 29 14:55 /tmp/davlockdb

So how come we get the "No such file or directory" when the lock is being used, when apache
manages to create the file ok? Beats me!

Any ideas are most welcome,we  have googled a lot but all similar errors seems to be resolved
by permission issues in one way or another, but don't see how this is related here, although
the error in the log seems very clear......
