Description of problem:
My subversion repository works fine. But I tried to get the web
interface working, that's where I get stuck.

This is my /etc/httpd/conf.d/subversion.conf:

LoadModule dav_svn_module     modules/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module   modules/mod_authz_svn.so
# Example configuration to enable HTTP access for a Subversion
# repository, "/home/svnroot".  This repository must be readable
# and writable by the 'apache' user.
<Location /svn/repos>
   DAV svn
   SVNPath /home/kvdb/repos

I did: chmod 777 /home/kvdb/repos -R
This is what I type in my webbrowser:
This is the error I get:

<m:human-readable errcode="13">
Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

[root@t-7-182 conf.d]# rpm -q subversion

Hope this is enough detail?

What does the error_log say?  If using multiple access methods to the
SVN repos, it's important to get the permissions correct: a simple
chown -R is not sufficient; see:

Or try users@subversion.tigris.org for help with basic repos admin.
