Hello everyone,

I have a site setup where I need to have svn access and my rails app
accessible on the same IP. Right now I can only seem to have one or the

This is a production environment... I'm running Ubuntu 7.04 server with
apache2 and mod_proxy serving rails requests to 2 mongrel servers via
mongrel_cluster and it works great to serve the app when I use this
httpd.conf file (I modified domain specific info to be generic) Also the
basic authentication is just because this is 80% developed app running
on a
test production server. I didn't want everyone and anyone in the company
developing this for to have access just by hitting the url. At least
basic auth it would take some effort to see the site without a username
password which no one involved in this project would care to do. So for
intent and purpose...ignore the basic auth! I know it sucks!

However if the below httpd.conf file is in place then all the sudden my
subversion repository is no longer accessable via dav_svn at

Is there a way to have both dav_svn http subversion access to my
and also serve the rails application? Please see httpd.conf file below.
