Can not access SVN by host name (only by IP)

Hi,

I have the following issue: I can not access our SVN repository if I am using the hostname defined for it (it works only through the IP).

On the DNS server it is defined that svn.idi.local should point to 192.168.2.211/svn.

On the SVN server I have the following files:

  • /etc/apache2/sites-available/subversion
<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName svn.idi.local
    <Location /svn>
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath /srv/svn
        SVNListParentPath On
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "IDI SVN  Authentication"
        AuthBasicProvider crowd
        CrowdAppName apache
        CrowdAppPassword apache
        CrowdURL http://localhost:8095/crowd/
        AuthzSVNCrowdAccessFile /etc/subversion/dav_svn.authz
        Require valid-user
    </Location>
</VirtualHost>
  • /etc/apache2/mods-available/dav_svn.conf
<Location /svn>
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath /srv/svn/
        SVNListParentPath On
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "Crowd Authentication"
        AuthBasicProvider crowd
        CrowdAppName apache
        CrowdAppPassword apache
        CrowdURL http://localhost:8095/crowd/
        AuthzSVNCrowdAccessFile /etc/subversion/dav_svn.authz
        Require valid-user
</Location>

I have also set up the dav_svn.authnz file.

My problem is that if I use 192.168.2.211/svn/src, I have access.

If I use svn.idi.local/src, I have no access (file not found on server). I do not know if the issue is on the SVN server or on the DNS server.

Pinging svn.idi.local shows me the correct address (192.168.2.211).

Any suggestions?

Found the issue: missing / in SVNParentPath. Now it works.
