When trying to commit a 2.7GB file to a repo using TortoiseSVN client from windows machine, an error is being received after uploading only 108MB of the file:

Commit failed (details follow):
Server sent unexpected return value (413 Request Entity Too Large) in response

I've googled this error and saw some ppl mention LimitXMLRequest directive which didn't help for some people so I don't want to edit stuff without knowing this is definitely the fix.

I would appreciate detailed step by step assistance from someone who knows what to do.

using CollabNet SVN 1.6.11 (r934486)

Thanks

can you point me to the directory of the svn conf file ?  I looked in:
~/.subversion/config or /etc/subversion/config
/etc/httpd/conf.d/
can't find it..

Try modifying LimitXMLRequestBody to 20971520 (20meg) in /etc/httpd/conf/http.conf
