Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Here are some brief notes I kept the last time I did this.
This assumes that you already have SSL set up for the
yum install subversion mod_dav_svn httpd mod_ssl
mkdir -p /var/svn; cd /var/svn; svnadmin create repo; chown -R apache. repo
set Location and SVNPath e.g. /var/svn/repo #not SVNParentPath
set AuthName and AuthUserFile e.g. /etc/svn/svn.users
include <LimitExcept OPTIONS> #if not readable by all
htpasswd -c /etc/svn/svn.users admin
service httpd restart
htpasswd /etc/svn/svn.users otheruser
The <Location> entry would be similar to this.
# Limit write permission to list of valid users.
#<LimitExcept GET PROPFIND OPTIONS REPORT>
AuthName "My Subversion Server"
Thanks a million for your helpful response carltm.
The line 'edit /etc/httpd/conf.d/subversion.conf' is where it starts to diverge for me, because the folder 'conf.d' does not exist in my httpd folder, there's only a 'conf' folder in it, which itself does not contain a 'subversion.conf' file in it ...
Any idea why this folder 'conf.d' would NOT exist? (recently the webserver was upgraded to apache2, because all the tutorials were covering apache2)
I ran that command and lo and behold, it finds a file 'welcome.conf' within folder 'httpd/conf.d', but then when doing an 'ls -al' command (which I believe shows hidden files as well), the folder does NOT appear?!

Strange huh? I have never seen anything like this ...
You've got some non-standard files directories, and the permissions are
not the ones that come with Centos. My guess is that this is not the
standard httpd package for Centos, or the server admins have done some
modifications, or both.
I'd suggest that you check in with the admins to find out the location
of the configuration files for apache and any customizations that they
