Cannot connect to SVN


#1

I was following the quick start at http://wiki.dreamhost.com/SVN
when I get to the import step that says

svn import some_directory http://svn.yoursite.com/myproject -m "Initial import" 

I get an error
svn: E175002: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'https://svn.blah.com/myproject
svn: E175002: The OPTIONS request returned invalid XML in the response: XML parse error at line 1: no element found (https://svn.blah.com/myproject)

I am using svn 1.7 in linux

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Do you have any web applications installed on the root of your domain? (For instance: for your example, is https://svn.blah.com/ a WordPress install or something?) Rewrite rules associated with these applications will often interfere with Subversion; you may need to disable them or move the application to get SCM operations to work properly.

Nope, No wordpress installed.
