Re: Accessing SVN repository via Apache and SSL client certificate? Almost there, but something is missing.

I believe when you have the SSLVerifyClient require directive inside the
<Location> node, apache does not ask for a client certificate during the
initial handshake. Only when you ask for a URL within that <Location>
does it ask for a client certificate, and svn doesn't seem to handle that.

Try moving the SSLVerifyClient directive to where you have the SSLEngine
On and SSLCertificateXXX directives, which in my case is in the virtual
host node.

This of course has the side effect of requiring ALL clients that connect
to the server to supply a valid certificate.
