Hi Glen,

At first glance, that looks OK to me. The next tests are:

- - Does /usr/home/svn/repos/default exist? (I know, dumb question!)

- - If it does, are permissions set such that the httpd process user can
read the directory? You said "chmod 777" on the repository parent
directory didn't work.

- - Please post the output of "ls -laR /usr/home/svn/repos"

Thank you,
Greg
