Thanks a lot for responding to my mail.
But I have tried what was there in the svnbook earlier and I got the below
error while accessing the repository through the Tortoise repository
Error * REPORT request failed on 'http://<IP:Port>/dummy' REPORT of
'http://<IP:Port>/dummy': 403 Forbidden (http://<IP:Port>)
I have removed the IP and Port in the above error for security reasons.
The contents of the httpd.conf file is as follows:
SVNReposName "NEO Dummy Repository"
AuthName "Subversion repository"
<Limit POST PUT>
Require group mygrp
<Limit PROPFIND GET>
Require group mygrp nopegroup
My physical path of the repository is: /subversion/dummy.
The access file /workarea/svn/svn-acl content is:
karthikp = wr
I have given it as "wr" instead of "rw" as it was giving the same error and
I have read that giving "wr" resolves the problem. But it is not the case
The group file /workarea/svn/svn_grp_file has the following content:
mygrp: karthikp dummy admin
Its working fine for me without this "AuthzSVNAccessFile" thing.
Please let me know if I am giving anything wrong or missing anything. Thanks
a lot in anticipation.
