RE: SVN Apache/WebDAV Windows Setup Quick Reference

To all readers of this:

XAMPP (1.4.13) still packages Apache 2.0.53 HOWEVER Subversion 1.2
(whenever that comes out) with locking fully enabled requires 2.0.54.

If you were hoping for full SVN locking + Autoversioning via WebDAV,
then make sure you either upgrade XAMPP to include Apache httpd 2.0.54

Subject: SVN Apache/WebDAV Windows Setup Quick Reference

Just thought this could be useful to somebody: I compiled a quick list
of actions I performed to get my SVN server work with Apache (Apache
obtained through the XAMPP precompiled distribution).
I don't know how good it is, but for sure it will be useful to me when I
will have to redo those actions in the future.



SVN Apache/WebDAV Windows Setup Quick Reference

1) get copy of xampplite (http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html)
and unpack it to c:\xampplite (important to keep the directory name)

2) take files mod_dav_svn.so and mod_authz_svn.so from the \httpd
subdirectory of the SVN binary install from subversion.tigris.org and
place them into C:\xampplite\apache\conf

3) add the following lines to C:\xampplite\apache\conf\httpd.conf

# svn repository access (note: mod_dav.so is loaded above) LoadModule
dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so LoadModule authz_svn_module

4) make sure that the following lines exist in httpd.conf (before the
previous ones) and/or are not commented out:
LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so LoadModule dav_fs_module

5) add a new url location (here, repository will be accessed trough
http://some.address/svn) handling routine to httpd.conf

# svn dav provider: all requests with url path /svn will be handled by
WebDAV <Location /svn>
        DAV svn
        # Absolute disk path of SVN parent directory (containing all SVN
        SVNParentPath /Temp
        # Access control policy
        AuthzSVNAccessFile conf/svnaccess.conf
        # How to authenticate users
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "Our Repository"
        AuthUserFile conf/svnusers.conf
        # Only valid users can access repository
        Require valid-user
        # Disables path checks alltogether (testing only!)
        #SVNPathAuthz off

6) create a the batch file "svnadduser.bat" in C:\xampplite\apache\conf,
containing the call to apache\bin\htpasswd.exe to add (user,password)

if not exist svnusers.conf ..\bin\htpasswd -cm svnusers.conf %1 if exist
svnusers.conf ..\bin\htpasswd -m svnusers.conf %1

and use it to add (user,password) couples to be handled in the

7) create the file "svnaccess.conf" in C:\xampplite\apache\conf,
containing the access policies and user groups
admins = svnadmin, User1
ourdevelopers = User2, User3

# give admins read/write access to all repositories @admins = rw

# give everyone (valid users) read access to this directory
#* = r
User2 = r
User3 = rw

@ourdevelopers = rw

8) testing:
- start apache with the xampp batch file in
C:\xampplite\apache_start.bat and check output for error messages
- try to access http://localhost/svn : it should popup an
authentication dialog and should let you in if the (user/password)
couple is right
- try to access as well the repository through SSL, at address
https://localhost/svn : it should have the same behavior
- stop apache
