I'm trying to get my subversion repository back up and running after having to wipe clean my hard drive. Installed all the packages from wsanchez's idisk. When I try to create a repository, here's the error message that I get:

httpd: Syntax error on line 98 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf: Module "/tmp/roots.XgDlOrcG/src/subversion-1.2.3/subversion/mod_dav_svn/mod_dav_svn.c" is not compatible with this version of Apache (found 20050708, need 20051115). Please contact the vendor for the correct version.

What does this mean? how do I get this file that is needed? how do I install it?

    I had a similar problem and I found out that Subversion needs webDAV to communicate with the Apache server. WebDAV allows your Apache server to not only read files but write them as well. WebDAV is open source and you can easily google up the site, but the least painful way of installing it, I found, is to use MacPorts ( Once you've installed MacPorts (read the beginners guide, it's quite good), tell it to install subversion with the variant web_dav_svn.
