Its Apache Serwer, but dont forget to change default password. Its possible, that any1 can enter your database.

You might not have installed it. The newer subversion installers install Apache without any option to disable it. You really don't need it if you are just running svnserve. It just wastes 200mb of ram and stops your own webserver.
