I'm running a custom apache/svn stack using a custom port. I would like to be able to offer this repository over port 80 on the main website because it looks cleaner.

I have tried a RewriteRule (on my personal box - I'm hoping Webfaction has mod_proxy) with the P(roxy) flag, but my Subversion client states '200 OK' without doing a checkout. Bummer.

ProxyPass need VirtualHost access, which means it is out.

Is there another way of accomplishing this?

Did you assign the port using a 'Custom application listening on port' type application?

If you did, than you should be able to use that application to route data to the domain using our control panel.

If not, than you need to. 'Custom application listening on port' type applications are required for any application that listens on a given port to keep that port reserved.

I haven't tried this on Webfaction's servers yet. It's faster and easier to try everything on my computer.

The problem with the RewriteRule route is that Subversion doesn't seem to like it.

The same problems for routing it from port X to port 80 would not exist on our platform since we use the nginx front-end server, which is what the control panel configures. You would just build your custom Apache server on our platform using SSH as a 'custom application listening on port' this would serve the application without having to worry about rewrite rules.
