Angry Subversion stopped working

Hi, I have a Fedora 20 where I have installed subversion 1.8 and it was working fine. All of a sudden I started to not being able to browse anything on my local web server, when I type http://localhost/phpmyadmin, I get a dialog box requesting name and password, titled "Subversion Repos", I give the right user and password and got redirected to an erro page indicating "Could not open the requested SVN filesystem", fired services manager, noticed that svn server had a yellow flag and not started. I fired a terminal and issued the command
systemctl start svnserve.service

I get
svnserve.service - Subversion protocol daemon
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/svnserve.service; enabled)
Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sun 2016-03-27 11:14:14 CEST; 19min ago
Process: 5747 ExecStart=/usr/bin/svnserve --daemon --pid-file=/run/svnserve/ $OPTIONS (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

Mar 27 11:14:14 salamlinux systemd[1]: svnserve.service: control process exited, code=exited status=1
Mar 27 11:14:14 salamlinux systemd[1]: Failed to start Subversion protocol daemon.

Mar 27 11:14:14 salamlinux systemd[1]: svnserve.service failed.
Mar 27 11:14:16 salamlinux svnserve[5747]: svnserve: Root path '/home/svn' does not exist or is not a directory.

my subversion.conf

LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/
LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/
# LoadModule dontdothat_module modules/

# Add the following to allow a basic authentication and point Apache to where the actual
# repository resides.
# <Location /repos>
#SVNPath /var/www/svn/repos
<Location />
DAV svn
SVNParentPath /var/www/svn
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Subversion repos"
AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-conf
Require valid-user

So I am not sure why today it is looking for '/home/svn' and why my web server is going to ti for each directory requesty
Thanks for your help
