Re: newby: svn + apache = no author

Hi Alexander,

just some quick "troubleshooting help":

>But here I'm doing authentication ...?
Are you?
Or are you just trying to?
To limit the number of possible problems, check if you get a password
prompt in a browser!
I.e. just call one of the svn-URLs in Mozilla / IE / whatever.
I'm almost sure this is an Apache configuration problem and not at all
related to Subversion.

The Apache configuration looks ok, though. Should the location be
"/svn/" instead of "/svn"? I'm not sure...
Take a look at the Apache log files - any error messages? I personally
think Apache ist not very "user friendly" in that respect, it usually
takes me some trial and error to get everything working.
Go step by step, maybe try it without SSL first...
As soon as you get the password prompt in the browser, you should also
see the username in the Apache access logs.

At that point, I'm (almost *g*) sure Subversion will be fine :-)

Good luck!
