I changed something to give read access everyone to see what's going on in
the system as shown below:

Require valid-user

Require valid-user

I wrote http://enigma/svn/CAGATAY in browser and
it gave this message on screen
"Could not open the requested SVN filesystem"
Maybe this message can help us at this moment.
What can be the reason of this error ? Something wrong in my system?

Thanks alot.
Best regards,

Subject: authorization error in Subversion+Apache server

Hi Everyone,
First, I have setup "apache_2.0.54-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi" program and then I
have setup "svn-1.1.4-setup" program.
I have a repository in "D:\CAGATAY" and in that directory, there are
"conf,db,dav,hooks,locks, format, readme" files and I have created a "MySVN"
directory there. I have successfully imported the content of MySVN.
I made the following changes in httpd.conf file as outlined in help file.
I have created 2 passwords using "htpassed" command as explained in

<Location /svn>
DAV svn
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Subversion repositories"
AuthUserFile passwd
#AuthzSVNAccessFile svnaccessfile
Require valid-user

I restared my Apache server and opened a browser window (IE).
(My machine name is enigma)
I wrote the following expressions in browser and it asked me

Even though I have written username/password correctly (I have tried
2 usernames/passwords , I couldnt see the repository.
It gave the following error since username/password was not successful.
"Authorization Required
This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document
requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password),
or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required."

What do you advice me at this moment?
I think this is different than authorization problem.
(I looked at Apache services and SVNService is working there)
Should I do something different than the information explained in website?
By the way, I use XP-service pack 2 but at home it is service pack1 but same
problem occurs there.

Thanks for your interest and help.
