RE: [Subclipse-users] Running the server and connecting

Hello,

Take a look at c:\repos\conf\svnserve.conf file. Make sure there the
following lines are uncommented:

[general]
### These options control access to the repository for unauthenticated
### and authenticated users. Valid values are "write", "read",
### and "none". The sample settings below are the defaults.
anon-access = none
auth-access = write
### The password-db option controls the location of the password
### database file. Unless you specify a path starting with a /,
### the file's location is relative to the conf directory.
### Uncomment the line below to use the default password file.
password-db = passwd

As long as lines above are commented, your passwd file is not used at all
and default respository access mode (for svn protocol) is read only access
for all users.

And read Subversion Book at http://subversion.tigris.org/ - there are good
examples in this book. It will answer all your questions and save a lot of
your (and others) time.

Alexander Kitaev.
