Subject Re: Problem in connecting the server
Date Sat, 02 Jun 2012 21:54:57 GMT

First of all, I really appreciate your continuing helps.

I'm new to subversion and server configuration, your helps
are very appreciated.

To disable /var/www/html/, is it OK to comment out the document
root setting in httpd.conf and <Direcotry /var/www/html> section?

My website location is This is where

And my subversion location is /var/lib/svn/ and accessible form . "ikasu" is the real name
of project.

/var/lib/svn/ is protected by .htpasswd. If you kindly check it, I'll
disable the auth related settings for /var/lib/svn.

Anyway, I'll try to disable the /var/www/html/ first.

Thanks again,
Kindest regards,
