mod_dav_svn dependencie check fail


Aug 8, 2005
Hi i need to install on my cpanel server running redhat a full svn installation (BTW, would be great if this could be included in the easy apache options ...) Anyway, i runned the following command:

yum install subversion

And it worked great. it finised with a nice "Complete!"

I double cheked with
svn --version

and got

svn, version 1.6.11 (r934486) compiled Apr 11 2013, 16:13:51

So fare so good ... Next command was
yum install mod_dav_svn

And that returned

[email protected] [~]# yum install mod_dav_svn

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
I made a search on the web but found very little info on this issue. What is httpd-mmn and how can i get it to 20051115 ?

Did you try to install it via RPM?

Installing mod_dav_svn from yum is not easily doable on a server running cPanel & WHM. The mod_dav_svn package depends upon the Apache packages provided by CentOS. On a cPanel & WHM server, Apache is not provided by RPM, but is source compiled by EasyApache. You might find success with this guide: How to configure Subversion + Apache [] in CPanel | ServerAdminz (found through random Google search).

I see this guide but I blocked to this :

./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs --with-apr-util=/home/cpeasyapache/src/httpd-2.2/srclib/apr-util --with-apr=/home/cpeasyapache/src/httpd-2.2/srclib/apr

get errors:

checking for neon-config... no

An appropriate version of neon could not be found, so libsvn_ra_neon
will not be built. If you want to build libsvn_ra_neon, please either
install neon 0.29.0 on this system


get neon 0.29.0 from:
unpack the archive using tar/gunzip and rename the resulting
directory from ./neon-0.29.0/ to ./neon/
