I have an existing site (eg https://subdomain.domain.com/) and it runs the SVN app at the root directory.

Is it possible to add another application (eg Redmine) to a directory on this server, i.e. https://subdomain.domain.com/redmine

When I tried to navigate to https://subdomain.domain.com/redmine I got a login box from SVN for my SVN credentials, I assume the SVN app receives the request to serve /redmine and assumes I want to look at that through my browser.

Is it possible to disable the web interface for SVN and have it used via SVN clients (eg tortoiseSVN only) so that I can serve other apps (like redmine) on this subdomain?

Thanks

Sure, you could simply remove the SVN app from your site (which disables HTTP access to your repo), and use the SVN+SSH protocol to access the repo via Tortoise.

Thanks for that, I have people out in the field already working with the https:// svn over tortoise svn and I don't want to break their workflow, but I will keep this in mind in the future.

Do you think what I want to do is impossible? To use https for SVN and also serve other pages/apps through paths other than root? I don't know anything about how the SVN protocol works over https unfortunately. In either case it isn't too critical and I can easily work around it.
