Could not open requested SVN filesystem

Posted on 2007-10-08

I'm attempting to get Subversion to work with Apache on a Windows 2003 machine and am having a heck of a time getting it to work.  I think I'm pretty close though.  When I try to access the repository through http:// I receive the following error.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
- <D:error xmlns:D="DAV:" xmlns:m="" xmlns:C="svn:">
  <C:error />
  <m:human-readable errcode="160033">Could not open the requested SVN filesystem</m:human-readable>

Can anyone help me get rid of this error?

    Accepted Solution

    I found the solution to my own problem.  Apparently the documentation I read that said you should use the Berkley DB with Subversion was a little off, as version 1.4.x doesn't support BDB.  I changed it to FSFS and everything is working fine.
