Error svn: Can't create directory in Subversion SVN

I created a respository in svn by doing the following:
svnadmin create clientconnector

This can be found in the following section:

chown -R apache.apache clientconnector

You shouldn't have to restart your apache server, but in case that this doesn't work, restart apache by doing: service httpd restart
