mod_dav_svn from subversion 1.7.x does not build against apache 2.4

Since the API in Apache 2.4.x has changed the mod_dav_svn module from svn doesn’t build currently. I made patch for that. There is only a small issue in subversion/mod_dav_svn/util.c

             ap_log_rerror(APLOG_MARK, level, errno, r, "%s  [%d, #%d]",
                           errscan->desc, errscan->status, errscan->error_id);

Now it compiles against Apache 2.2 and Apache 2.4


Any feedback is welcome.

Preparing mod_svn for compiling on windows

Well I didn’t manage it to compile mod_svn without the apache compiled source tree, but than it works fine and fast. Also Python 3 did not work. So I took 2.7
Assuming that OpenSSL 1.0.0a and zlib are compiled in that source tree as well.

C:\python27\python -t vcproj --vsnet-version=2008 --with-httpd=C:\build\httpd-2.2.x-sni-dev-ipv6
 --with-zlib=C:\build\httpd-2.2.x-sni-dev-ipv6\srclib\zlib --with-apr=C:\build\httpd-2.2.x-sni-dev-ipv6\srclib\apr

Than just open subversion_vcnet.sln with Visual C++ Express Edition. Ignore all warnings about solution folders. Choose the __ALL__ project. Than change from debug to release. Start!

My sample config

LoadModule dav_module modules/
LoadModule dav_fs_module modules/

LoadModule auth_digest_module modules/
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/
LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/

  DAV svn
