I can't figure this out. I try to import a new project into a svn repository from Netbeans and get 403 Forbidden. I just setup svn on my serverbox today. I can get to it through a browser just fine, though its empty as I haven't imported my project yet.

Apache's path for html files is /var/www I setup the svn repo in /var/svn

This is the structure of /var/svn

I've got httpd.conf loading svn.conf which contains:

<Location /svn>
DAV on
DAV svn
#SVNParentPath /var/svn
SVNPath /var/svn/repo
Authtype Basic
AuthName "Subversion"
AuthUserFile /var/svn/repo/svnpass
Require valid-user
AuthzSVNAccessFile /var/svn/repo/svnauth
</Location>

Full error message is:

org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: RA layer request failed
Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to CHECKOUT request for '/svn/!svn/bln/0'

Sorry for the incredibly long post, but I thought more info would be better than less. I've been fidgeting with this problem for a long time now.
