Subject org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: svn: authentication cancelled
Date Mon, 19 Jul 2010 19:55:12 GMT

I am using Buckminster which is a build tool hosted at One of
the things that Buckminster does is gather components that are later build.
Gathering achieved through "providers" that can be local, svn or
eclipse.import. The one I am interested in is svn provider and it basically
accesses svn repository through different protocols: http, https, svn and
svn+ssh. I need to use http protocol with credentials embedded in url such
as http://user123:pass@server/svn.
The problem I am facing is that whenever I use svn provider with http
protocol I get this error in return:
org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: svn: authentication cancelled"
. I've read different articles about this and whatever was suggested does
not work for me. I started playing with Apache settings thinking that this
is purely setup issue, in my http.conf file I added AuthUserFile
/etc/subversion/passwd that was created using htpasswd utility, but that did
not do anything, same error. The only way I get through this error is if I
cancels authentication altogether which is not what I want.
Does anybody know what is the cause of this error in the setup I described
above? Are there logs I can look at, debug something to see what's going on?

thanks for your help,
