Subversion with XAMPP

Postby ZoZo » 07. February 2006 18:39


I'm trying to get subversion (1.3.0) to work with XAMPP (1.5.1 with Apache 2.2 and SSL).
The Apache service won't start, so I tried to start it manually, and this is the output I get:
apache.exe: Syntax error on line 142 of <apache_path>/conf/httpd.conf: API module structure `dav_svn_module' in file <svn_path>/bin/ is garbled - perhaps this is not an Apache module DSO?

I added this to httpd.conf:

Code: Select all
LoadModule dav_svn_module [i]<svn_path>[/i]/bin/"
LoadModule authz_svn_module [i]<svn_path>[/i]/bin/"

and this:

Code: Select all
<Location /svn>
     DAV svn
     SVNPath d:/svnrepos

apache_path: The path where Apache is installed.
svn_path: the path where I installed Subversion.

If I remove all this, Apache works again.

Before trying XAMPP, I had tried a manual setup of Apache 2.0.55 + PHP 5.1.2 + MySQL 5.0.18 + OpenSSL 0.98a. Subversion integration worked until I tried adding SSL support, then Apache wouldn't start anymore. I thought I was doing something wrong in the SSL setup, but could it be that the SVN and SSL modules aren't compatible on Windows (??).

And the fact that XAMPP has Apache 2.2 probably doesn't help either. Are Apache 2.0 modules compatibles with Apache 2.2?

Thanks for any help!

So basically I should forget about using SVN with XAMPP at the moment?

Is this in Windows? I have it working with Xampp 1.5.2 beta 1 (Apache 2.2.0, PHP 5.1.2, etc), apart from the SSL. But this is for a windows development desktop, nothing in production. I followed instructions found in the symfony website: ... vironment#
