If you are using the git-http-backend CGI, it will interpret the service
tag and start smart-http. See "git help http-backend" for details on
plugging it into Apache.

Cloning/fetching does not use DAV at all; it is only for non-smart
pushing (and I would not recommend setting it up; the smart protocol
spoken by git-http-backend does pushing much more efficiently, and is
better maintained).

If you haven't set up git-http-backend, then git is just going to fetch
the remote repo's data directly over http. So the usual advice for
accessing something via http would apply (check the server's access and
error logs, try hitting it with a web browser, etc).

If you set GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1 in your environment, git will spew a lot
of debugging information about what http requests it is making. That
might give you a clue (you haven't said anything about what does not
work, so I can't be more specific).
