View Full Version : [ubuntu] Setting up svn server

June 17th, 2009, 12:01 AM
I have a ubuntu lamp server setup and i installed subversion and libapache2svn. Next I modified /etc/apache2/mods-available/dav_svn.conf and set it to this:

<Location /svn>

DAV svn
SVNPath /var/svn

So next I tried checking out the repository without giving a username from another computer on my network and it worked. How do I make it ask for a password?

Take a look at the free Subversion book at http://svnbook.red-bean.com/ if you haven't already. There's also a very active Subversion users mailing list at users@subversion.tigris.org (I follow that list enough to know that they frequently deal with the kinds of set-up issues you're facing, but I don't follow those discussions closely enough to know the answer to your question.)

Good luck!
