SVN over HTTP with mod_dav_svn - Setup


I have a server running Apache httpd and SVN. I want to be able to use my repositories remotely, i have a repository in /home/svn/test

I have followed this guide:

I have included http-svn.conf in the httpd.conf

# Uncomment the following lines to enable svn support:
LoadModule dav_svn_module lib/httpd/modules/
#LoadModule authz_svn_module lib/httpd/modules/

#SVN Repository settings
include "/etc/httpd/httpd-svn.conf"
Content of httpd-svn.conf:
<Location /myproject>
    DAV svn
    SVNPath "/home/svn/test"
    AuthType "Basic"
    AuthName "Projects"
    AuthUserFile "/home/private/"
    Order deny,allow
        Require valid-user
I have also made the pw file in /home/private/

htpasswd -c home/private/ admin
The file is created so that should not be a problem.

I have tried adding a SVN repository in Eclipse with the following URL:

Error from within Eclipse:
RA layer request failed
svn: OPTIONS of '': 200 OK (
I am clearly getting HTTP Status code 200, so there is a connection.

What am i missing ?
