WebSVN is now working for me. However http://SERVER/svn is not. I point 
my browser to "http://SERVER/svn"and I get "403 Forbidden".

My dav_svn.conf file includes these lines:
     SVNParentPath /Subversion
     SVNListParentPath on
     Deny from all
     Satisfy any
     AuthzSVNAccessFile /Subversion/conf/authz

The authz file includes these lines:
     everybody = andy,louis,spencer
     @everybody = r
     andy = rw
     @everybody = rw
     spencer = rw
Now AFAIK this should mean that there is a group named "everybody" which 
includes all Subversion users, and that group everybody has read access 
to every repository, and user andy has read/write access to 'subdoc', 
and group everybody has read/write access to 'gamble', and that only 
user spencer has write access to 'fred3'.

I am user andy. I can point my browser to "http://SERVER/svn/subdoc" or 
even "http://SERVER/svn/fred3" with no problem, but not 
"http://SERVER/svn" -- 403 Forbidden.  I think I've done everything that 
the documentation says I should do, but it doesn't work.

FYI, I am running Subversion 1.6.12dfsg-4ubuntu2.1.

So how do I give group everybody (but not all users on the server, i.e. 
@everybody but not *) read access to $SVNParentPath ?
