Subversion error: Repository moved permanently to please relocate

Solution 1:

I had this recently... but it turned out I had forgotten the url :)

One thing you must do is ensure your svn Location does not overlap any apache-servable websites. ie, if you set your DocumentRoot to be /www, and your svn Location to be /www/svn... then you're in trouble - Apache won't know what its supposed to be served with (ie the svn special handlers, or a straight http handler).

See the FAQ entry for this.

Solution 2:

Try checking out (note the trailing slash).

Solution 3:

Check this web:

Probably the alias points to the same place as congfigured is dav_svn.mod, and there is race-condition between apache and dav_svn while accesing repo.

It's better explained in provided article

In dav_svn.conf:

  <Location /svn>  #Alias we are talking about
  DAV svn

In apache_site.conf

<IfModule mod_ssl.c>
<VirtualHost *:443>
    ServerAdmin [email protected]

    #Alias /svn  "/mnt/nfs/svn/"  ###Comment out or change this alias
