not sure SVN question could be this forum or not. ..

I have install SVN server in the Ubuntu, it works except the web access,

/home/czy/svn3 is a parent directory, it contains lots of projects, each of them has trunk, branch folder. I gave permission to the parent folder, sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /home/czy/svn3 , but when I go to browser, http://localhost/svn/ , it said, "You don't have permission to access /svn/ on this server." .

Do I miss anything ?

This is the right forum for SVN. But since your question concerns OS and/or webservers as well, I'll add it to the General Computing forum as well.

I'm no expert on these matters, but the opening tag <Location /svn> seems incorrect to me. Are you sure about it?

Is /home/czy/svn3 a Subversion repository directory? In other words, when you created the repository did you run "svnadmin create /home/czy/svn3"?

I agree. Here's the link:
