*shudders*

Let's see if we can actually get Apache to work this time. Although last time it was on CentOS, I'm going through the distro's until I can get it to work properly!
Take 2.

Re: *shudders*

Apache should work fine on any distro, what are you trying to do? Setup a LAMP server? if so look <a href=http://www.thepointingcow.co.uk/2009/11/lamp-install-on-ubuntu-server/>here</a>

Re: *shudders*

No - Setting up subversion with Apache.
Last time round on CentOS, I set up Subversion, set up Apache, configured the Apache .conf file, and whenever I tried browsing to it and entering login credentials for "userone", I got a 403 forbidden, despite giving "userone" rw permissions.
I'm probably screwing up the config file somewhere, but I'll see if I have any better luck with Ubuntu Smiley
Slightly unrelated though - I've been using the Terminal that it came with and apparently vim is a good cli 'thing'.  Once I've installed it, how do I actually use it?

Re Vim don't know not used it for years!
I use joe (uses wordstar keys, although you are probable to young to remember them  Wink)
If you install joe (sudo apt-get install joe) pressing Ctrl-K-H will bring up a help screen (shown at the top of the screen)
Ctrl-K are the most used commands, -s to save, -x to quit and save, -q to quit without saving

Re: *shudders*

Oooohhh.  Upgrading to 9.10, this might take a while....
And I'm probably far too young.  I'm not 40 until 2020 Cheesy

p.s.  Back in my day, when I were a lad, we had to compile the processor before we could boot the machine to compile to OS to boot the OS to compile the app stack to run the app stack....  think yourself lucky with all this apt-get rubbish!

Re: *shudders*

Ok - So back to the same problem.
I've set up my svn.authz file & dav_svn.conf files (I think correctly)
And whenever I try to browse to http://hostname.svn it asks me for a username and password, so i enter the user who I've given rw permissions to and the password and then I get a 403 Forbidden page.
Any ideas?

Re: *shudders*

Thanks Barry Smiley
Turns out it was all down to a missing square bracket.

Re: *shudders*

vim FTW!
Re: Apache - It's good and fairly stable but very old and big. I've been using lighttpd for a bit at home and I'm pretty impressed with it so far. Not tried any DAV but there's a module for it IIRC.
