Trouble with AuthType Digest

From: Aniruddha Apte <aniapte_at_gmail.com>

Hello Everybody,

I have a svn setup on windows (both client and server) that works ok
with AuthType Basic in the httpd.conf. However if if try to make the
authtype as digest, apache gives me errors. I am not sure if AuthType
Digest is supported by svn. (I thought it shouldn't matter since
authentications are done by apache for the top level url path - in my
case the /svn authentications will be done by apache right?)

My httpd.conf contains the following
<Location /svn>
    DAV svn
    SVNParentPath f:/svn/
    # our access control policy
   AuthzSVNAccessFile f:/svn/access_file.txt
   # only authenticated users may access the repository
   Require valid-user
   # how to authenticate a user
        AuthType Digest
        AuthName "Subversion repository"
        AuthUserFile f:/svn/users.file
</Location>

and the httpd error is:
[Fri Jan 21 20:07:20 2005] [crit] [client 127.0.0.1] configuration
error: couldn't check user. No user file?: /svn/repos/

Although both the users.file and access_file.txt are present.
It looks like apache is trying to find the user file somewhere else.
Can someone please provide some pointers?

thanks again,
-anir
