I just installed a fresh copy of Leopard Server on a Mac Pro. I am have been using Linux for the past 6 years but am exploring moving some things over to Mac OS X Server. The first thing I am trying to do is set up subversion on the native apache so I can use it as my primary version control server. It was easy of course to enable the correct modules, but unless I am missing something big there is no way to enable or configure a specific svn repository inside of Server Admin. That is fine, I am used to configuring apache manually anyway. But I ran into lots of problems trying to edit the config files and not having my settings get overwritten any time Server Admin updated it's configuration.
Generally any edit by hand is a one-way trip. In some cases with some services (eg: postfix) in past iterations of OS X Server, one's manual edits have on some occassions been preserved, but it's always been a bit of a crapshoot.
You can safely use the admin GUI tools to stop and start services that you've manually configured, but that's about it. And besides, just use:
sudo serveradmin stop web
or "start web"
via shell acess. man serveradmin for more
and you can still use: apachectl restart (apachectl configtest , etc.) after making a manual edit.
As for apache + svn in 10.5 server, you might enjoy the following (came across it just recently):
