When I try to perform a checkout from a Subversion repo hosted at Webfaction all goes well for the first 4 minutes, but then the checkout fails with an error:

Error: REPORT of '/!svn/vcc/default': Could not read response body: Secure connection

I am using TortoiseSVN on Windows 7 64 bit.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

The link below suggests Apache Timeout value should be adjusted to solve the problem.

The repository from which I am trying to do a checkout is not overly big (22MB/3469 files).

This problem is related to the HTTPS connection timing out. Here is a more detailed explanation.

Increasing the Timeout value of the Apache server is not feasible on our side, as this could cause stability problems.

I would suggest that you try using another SVN client on your machine (e.g. the original SVN client from http://subversion.apache.org/packages.html) - it might perform better than Tortoise SVN, and thus avoid the timeout.

Another option is to do a checkout over SSH rather than over HTTPS, thus skipping the Apache server altogether.
