The current config file that comes with Apache 2.2.0 has the owner already configured. Therefore, the instructions above are a bit outdated.



svnadmin create <path to repository>
chown -R www <path to repository>


should now read:

svnadmin create <path to repository>
chown -R daemon <path to repository>


And setting the User to www is no longer necessary.

# User nobody
User www ### Not necessary. Apache 2.2.0 already configured: User daemon


The rest of this article is spot on, and I have found it amazingly useful.

    I agree that the article is a bit outdated. The chown -R www certainly is not necessary anymore. However, when I tried you suggestinon of using

    chown -R daemon <path to repository>

    I got a lot of "Operation not permitted" errors. Perhaps you meant something else?
