Subject SVN Passwd | Authentication issue
Date Tue, 21 Apr 2015 16:37:54 GMT
We use plan text passwd file for authentication of users on our SVN server.
This was working fine until few days ago, then I had to add a few new users
to the system, and during the process I accidentally deleted the passwd
file, but managed to recreated the file with all the users in it.

Post the above change, the users are not able to interact with SVN, not
able to perform any actions on the SVN servers (like Checkout / Commit
/etc). I have restarted the svnserve daemon after recreating the passwd
file, but users get the error: "Unable to connect to repository at URL" ...
"Authentication Failed".

We directly reach the repository over svn:// protocol, (no http/s), and
this used to work fine for us, until the above change.

Any help, much appreciated.
