Re: Access control and LDAP

I use LDAP for authentication and access control but defining groups
containing LDAP account and my cn does not contain spaces (!).
More, since group members separator in AuthzSVNAccessFile is "," you
cannot configure your authentication module to return the full DN of the
authenticated subject.
Can you check the apache log to see what subject you module returns ?

I think that your module is configure to return the full DN, so when you
set:
John SMITH = rw
the check fails because subject doesn't match.

When you set
'cn=John SMITH, ou=US, o=my-company' = rw
cn=John SMITH, ou=US, o=my-company = rw

I think that the check fails because line parser gets first "=" as a
separator between username and access control directive.
