Hi sinhatpro,

Do you have SELinux on enforcing mode?

Could you also post output of following commands:


ls -ladZ /svn

ls -laZ /svn/

ls -laZ /svn/myproject2

Hi Kavaskar,

I created /etc/svn-auth-users and then used that file on subversion.conf (step 4.):


AuthzSVNAccessFile /etc/svn-access-control

You can use any file name, if you just add it after AuthzSVNAccessFile to config.

When I modify password with htpasswd command for a existing user, this password works for SVN checkout and update from folder level.

However for SVN console it doesn’t work, I can login using the old password.
