SVN Permission issue
I installed SVN on Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop PC and I was able to successfully configure the SVN server to access it via Apache + WebDAV
but the thing is the repository can be access by anyone though i give permissions to the /repository/config/authz file after configuring svnserve.conf and passwd files in the same location.
I want to restrict users to access the repository. Only when i create apache users " sudo htpasswd /etc/subversion/passwd user_name "they can do changes to the repository by giving their authentication details. But not the users who are in /repository/config/passwd file [those users are not active :-( ]
can anyone explain what had happen and how to reconfigue pertaining to this scenario please ?
I think when we configure WebDAV to connect to the repository svnserve.conf file in the particular repository has nothing to do with configurations.
when I try to connect to the repository by giving username and password it gives error "403 Forbidden" When Using AuthzSVNAccessFile
my dav_svn.conf file has the following syntax
AuthName "Subversion Repository"
