Multiple repositories and Apache

I'm brand new to Subversion so please excuse my ignorance if the answer to
this question is trivial, but I haven't been able to find it in either the
book or the mailing lists.

I would like to set up Apache so that my clients can access their
repositories through my website. I want to make sure that users can browse
their own repositories only. They should have absolutely no access to any
other client's project.

For example, I have three users who can access their own client areas on my
server through their username.



Now, I created a repository for each of them outside their home directory
like so:

So far so good. But, how do I configure Apache so each of these users can
access their repositories? I'd like to give them access like so:

http://www.domain.com/~user1/svn - map to - /home/svnroot/user1
http://www.domain.com/~user2/svn - map to - /home/svnroot/user2
http://www.domain.com/~user3/svn - map to - /home/svnroot/user3

How do I make sure that the repositories are password protected and only the
actual owner can access their own repository?

Using the Apache <Location> directive I could only configure Apache to
access the directories like this:


My config file looks like this:

<Location /svnroot>
   DAV svn
   SVNParentPath /home/svnroot

   # Limit write permission to list of valid users.
      # Require SSL connection for password protection.
      # SSLRequireSSL

      AuthType Basic
      AuthName "Neu Solutions Repository"
      AuthUserFile /var/www/data/htusers
      Require valid-user

I could live with those URLs but the authentication is global, not
repository specific! Do I have to add a specific <Location> tag for each

What am I missing here? Please help!

Thank You,
