subversion, websvn, and apache2

Hello all!,


I am trying to enable authentication on my repositories. I have multiple
repositories setup and want to give different users access to different
repositories. I am using basic authentication; the logon window pops up
when I try to access the repository via the web browser, but it does not
accept my password. Here are the relevant configuration files:


vim /etc/websvn/svn_deb_conf.inc


// please edit /etc/websvn/config.inc

// or use dpkg-reconfigure websvn


$config->addRepository("ots", "/home/svnroot/ots");

//.other repositories




I am running apache2 as a user svnroot. Here is my apache configuration


User svnroot



        ServerAdmin webmaster@omalas.internal

        ServerName svn.omalas.internal

# DocumentRoot /var/www/websvn

        SSLEngine on

        SSLCertificateFile \


        SSLCertificateKeyFile \


        SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*MSIE.*" nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown


        # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,

        # alert, emerg.

        LogLevel warn


        ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/svn.omalas.internal-error.log

        CustomLog /var/log/apache2/svn.omalas.internal-access.log common

        ServerSignature On


        <Location /ots>

                SVNPath /home/svnroot/ots

                AuthType Basic

                AuthName "Subversion repository"

                AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/svn-auth-file

                Require Valid-user




I have setup a user called svnroot as follows: htpasswd /etc/svn-auth-file
-cm svnroot
But when browsing to https://svn.omalas.internal/ots, the logon window pops
up but I cannot login.
Please let me know of anything that I may be overlooking.
Thank you.
