Common Confusing Error with SVN Clients

There is an error message in SVN, which is quite confusing:
OPTIONS of '': 200 OK
This error is mostly caused by mistyping the repository address.

Workaround:
Check you typed the address correctly, you can try the address in your browser and check weather you see correct pages. Some SVN server tools such as Visual SVN Server, provide some HTML pages, so that you can log-in and check the repository tree using your browser. One thing to remember, when specifying paths, you should specify the full path to your files in repository server.

Hope this helps!
