Hello, broths
Hi Petter,
I encountered a question about svn authority question.
My colleague use svn successfully all the time, but yesterday he can't access.
I have checked the "authz" file and found out it changed.
The Directory has been changed .
The difference below looks like somebody has tried editing the authz file and has corrupted it while saving. Who else has access to this file? If nobody else has access, perhaps some process on the server has corrupted the file.
Can you help me?
 Realistically, this is an SVN question rather than a TortoiseSVN question, because it relates to the server. However, many of the people here know quite a bit (and more than me, usually) about SVN.
Access Failed
It's quite clear that the last two lines of the original have somehow been merged together. It looks like, possibly, a cut-and-paste error. It also looks like you have good version control of the authz file, so you can just restore the working version.

Important questions:

What sort of hardware/OS is the server running on?
What version of SVN server?
Tortoise (not that I think that matters)?
What other processes are running that might do this - virus scanner, perhaps?
 As a side question, why are there four identical lines for chenwenchao?
