Implies that there may be a problem with read access to /var/www/websvn/index.php, or it might not even exist. Check that and correct if necessary before repeating process.

A clue here is that the package has the name 'alpha' in it. This normally implies 'with problems and bugs'! Unless you're comfortable with messing with alpha software, normally I'd avoid it, and I definitely would not be putting it into a production environment.

hmm okei. got the websvn 1.6 working now.
but I like how 2.1 looks.
thor918Author Commented:
it has nothing to do with it beeing alpha.
tried to manually add the 1.6 and got same error.

using apt-get, websvn1.6 worked.

the php file exists.

so it's a config problem.

okey. 1.6 is good anyway.
I see I had an ugly standard on.
anyone know how to support chars that are non english?
thor918Author Commented:
a php.ini change :)
thor918Author Commented:
still wondering about how to manually add a newer version of websvn. still don't understand why I get that premission error.
thor918Author Commented:
hmm has something to do with file premissions.
if the owner is root on all files, it works.
