Subversion, Radius and Virtual Hosts in apache

From: Andy Brook <andy.brook_at_chp.co.uk>

We're trying to setup subversion via apache on FreeBSD 5.3 using RADIUS
authentication (as MS-IAS is already setup to talk to our active


This config works fine via the web interface but doesn't work from
tortoisesvn (I get a 301 error as per here...
http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#301-error )



  ServerName svn.svr.chp.co.uk

  DocumentRoot /home/svnrepo

  ErrorLog /home/svnrepo/logs/main

  AddRadiusAuth <password> 5:3

  AddRadiusCookieValid 5

  <Location /main>

    DAV svn

    SVNPath /home/svnrepo/main

    AuthType Basic

    AuthName "Active Directory Authentication"

    AuthAuthoritative off

    AuthRadiusAuthoritative on

    AuthRadiusCookieValid 5

    AuthRadiusActive On

    Require Valid-User

    AuthzSVNAccessFile /home/svnrepo/m




So I tried changing the document root to... "DocumentRoot
/home/sites/null" which has an empty index.html in file and shouldn't
clash however then I get a 404 error when trying to access
http://svn.svr.chp.co.uk/main/ yet http://svn.svr.chp.co.uk/ works fine.
Tortoise still doesn't work instead giving a 405 error "Method Not
Allowed". If I leave the config as above and take out the
authentication both the web and tortoise work. I'm using


Another confusing thing is that there are no error messages in any of
the logs when that 404 appears.


If anyone has any idea where I'm going wrong I'd be very grateful, the
eventual aim is to have several different repositories with different
authentication files authenticating against the same radius server on
the same virtual host.


Many thanks in advance,


Andy Brook
