is there a nice tutorial on how to setup SVN via Apache2/HTTPS with ISPConfig3?

Or, to be a bit more specific - there are some tutorials I already read, but I don't know how to implement it with ISPConfig3...

Let my domain be
My SVN should be available trough

So, a few questions:

1) Do i do this in the Options tab of, or should I create a Subdomain or completly new Domain?

2) As far as I found out, I have to add the following lines to my Apache config:


DAV svn
SVNParentPath /var/svn

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Subversion Repository"
AuthUserFile /usr/local/svn-root/dav_svn.passwd
Require valid-user

SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/apache.pem

But do I have to do all this with ISPConfig as well? Because I think ISPConfig is doing the SSL thing already... but what about the rest?

So in overall, what do I have to add to the Domain-Options -> Apache directives box? :)

AFAIK, if you enable SSL and create an SSL cert, ISPConfig creates two vhosts, one ofr http and one for https. If oyu enable WebDAV, it is added to both vhosts.

thanks a lot - got it to work :)

Only one thing... I added this to my Apache Directives in the Options tab:


        <Location /svn/>
                DAV svn
                SVNPath [....]
                AuthType Basic
                AuthName [...]
                AuthUserFile [...]
                Require valid-user

So I can access the SVN via:

But, I'd like to have it via:

I tried to do this with an Sub-Domain entry (Redirect Type "NoFlag" and "/svn" as target), but this didn't work..

Any idea how I can do this?
I don't want to create a new site "" just for this silly thing :(

Is it not possible to do this?
Maybe with an own Apache Directive somehow?
