I have been plagued by this error in subversion particularly when trying to commit from some of the boxes which I use less frequently:
svn: E175002: Unexpected HTTP status 200 ‘OK’ on ‘POST’ request to ‘/svn/!svn/me’
I have spent hours doing searches, reading posts, but have never found anyone whose issue was exactly like mine, not been able to figure it out based on other peoples issues. I resolved today to pay serious attention to figuring it out.
The solution turned out to be related to the url I used when I check something out of the svn repository. Long ago I set up a cname in dns for svn.wmbuck.net, and for a long time I used it. There is an apache config file for the servername svn.wmbuck.net, and it redirects http to https. Then at some point I began to just use https://wmbuck.net/svn/… to check things out. And that is where I went wrong, because that will work fine to do checkout, but when I try to commit from a box with that url (wmbuck.net) the http request is being routed to the default server, and the setup of the SSL session is failing.
I’m unsure exactly what is happening to cause the request to go to the default server. Perhaps the commit request does not specify SNI information.
What I do know is how to fix it. Do the checkout with https://svn.wmbuck.net/svn/ and commits work fine.
I had some trouble on the development box with permissions and decided it would be “easy” to just have apache run under user dee, that would just make everything so much easier. Right.
Two things have come up so far, and more likely to follow. One, I had to change the ownership on /var/lib/php/session from apache to dee. Second, I had to add dee into tlsusers so the media stuff can read the certificate.
This may have been a bad idea.
1/31/18: Went back to using apache user, when I moved to Fedora 27. Fedora now uses php-fpm service, and now apache needs to open a socket to it, and it just became complicated.
I’ve been using this Samsung 4K screen for 3 years. I never adjusted any of the parameters for making things larger. I just got used to the small fonts, and blew things up by application when I needed to.
I’ve been doing some reading in anticipation of getting a new laptop maybe with hidpi. Learned stuff about changing resolution.
With Gnome-Tweak tool->Windows->HIDPI Window scaling, can blow up everything in Gnome. Can only have integer values, so with 2, I can double the size. But after several years of smaller sizes I don’t really like this. Might need it on the laptop though.
With Firefox and Thunderbird, use config editor and find layout.css.devPixelsPerPx. This can have non integer values and 1.5 in Thunderbird is better for me. For Firefox I currently have it set at 1.3.

I have some problem using mod_xsendfile on tarragon. I’ve been working on getting this working for 2 days. I have had to get into the source code of the apache module to figure it out, and I want to turn on the debugging option to see what is going on.
So I have to recompile the c source file, with the define of _DEBUG, and install the it as a module. Had to figure out how to do this. It is very easy. But easy doesn’t mean I’ll remember it, thus this post.
I cloned the source:
git clone https://github.com/nmaier/mod_xsendfile (into my local git repo), and then cd into the directory, and
apxs -D_DEBUG -i -c mod_xsendfile.c
This creates the module with debugging defined, and puts it in /usr/lib64/httpd/modules/mod_xsendfile.so
It still needs to be loaded into apache. Instructions at his site say to use the -a flag, to activate, but while that would work on a simple site, it tries to put the LoadModule into /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf, and all my LoadModule statements are in files in the directory /etc/httpd/conf.modules.d so I need to create /etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/xsendfile.conf containing:
LoadModule xsendfile_module modules/mod_xsendfile.so
The module will log debug statements, but this still won’t actually get you any log records until you set LogLevel debug in the apache config file.
Then restart apache and Bob’s your uncle.
