Subject [users@httpd] htpasswd on Apache 2.2
Date Wed, 17 Jun 2009 16:43:24 GMT


So I set up my Apache server to authenticate using both file and ldap


I'm using an Apache server for Subversion. I create file accounts into
an already existing file in this manner:


htpasswd -m <auth-file> <username>


I then give it a password.


Next, I test the username with this command: 


svn info --username <username> <URL>/repo


Password for '<username>': 

svn: Server sent unexpected return value (401 Authorization Required) in
response to OPTIONS request


What is strange is that I follow the same procedure and it works for
some of the user names I've created and does not for others. I've
restarted the server as well. Do the lengths of the username and
password matter?


Suggestions? :-)
