Subject [users@httpd] Client Authentication Setup
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2005 19:10:24 GMT

Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong location. Didn't know where to file
this one under.
I'm having a problem setting up access and authentication using subversion
and tortoise.
Client: WinXP, Tortoise 1.1.4
Server: Solaris 9, subversion 1.0.5
Apache 2.0.54

When I use tortoise's repo browser to access my repository, I get the
following error message:
"Unable to access /svn: 403:Forbidden"

I imagine it's a permissions issue. Here's my httpd.conf file

user svn
group svnadmin

specific modules

<Location /svn>
DAV svn
SVNParentPath /export/myserver/repos

#Access Policy
AuthzSVNAccessFile /etc/svn-access-file

Require valid-user

#How to authenticate
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Eric's Repos"
AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-file
AllowOverride None
Order Allow, Deny
Allow from all

the user and group have recursive read/write perms on /export/myserver/repos

Apache's error log shows the following:
[crit] client <> Permission Denied
/export/myserver/repos/ .htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check .htaccess
file, ensure it is readable

access log:
"PROPFIND / HTTP 1.1" 403 202 "-" "SVN/1.1.4 (r13838) neon/0.24.7 (access
through repo browser)
"GET / HTTP 1.1 403 202 Mozilla/4.0 compatible msie 6.0 Win Nt 5.1

I can't figure out what I'm missing. Any input would be appreciated.
