Re: password-db failure?

HI!

Well you've found your way to the right file, but the solution should be
this:

Standard the svnserve.conf file does not allow commits by anyone. If you
want anybody to be able to commit to the repository, you need to put in either:

auth-access = write
(for write access for authenticated users)
or

anon-access = write
(for write acces for non-authenticated users)

in the [general] section.

A description of what you can do to configure svnserve wrt authentication is
right above where you found the information on the format of the users file.

HTH,

Erik.
