SvnBridge Error

I followed the instructions for using TortoiseSVN (, but received this error at the 'SVN Checkout' stage:

"Client found response content type of 'text/html;charset=windows-1252', but expected 'text/xml'.
"The request failed with the error message:
"<HTML><BODY>The virtual server that is referenced here is not in the config database.</BODY></HTML>"

TortoiseSVN reported:

Error: PROPFIND request failed on '/'
Error: General svn error from server

Here is the url I was using:


and the server URL and project name from the 'source code' page:

Project Name: fogbugzworkingon
Server URL:

Hmm, it almost sounds like you have IIS installed on the local machine and it is picking up the request instead of SvnBridge.  Maybe try changing the port for SvnBridge to something other then 8081 and trying again?

Exactly right. Thanks for that!
