Re: Restricting read access to one file

Doh!

How about this then [I haven't tried it, though]:

Create a special a special Authorization file that gives read acces only
to those people that need it.

Use reg-exp in the apache httpd.conf file to achieve what you need.

From the apache documentation:
--- cut 'ere ---
Extended regular expressions can also be used, with the addition of the ~
character. For example:
<Location ~ "/(extra|special)/data">
--- cut 'ere ---

Something like this:

<Location ~ "your-specail-file">
  DAV svn
  SVNPath C:/repo

  AuthType Basic
  AuthName "Special file access"
  AuthUserFile c:/etc/htpasswd

  Require valid-user

  AuthzSVNAccessFile c:/etc/your-special-auth-file
</Location>

Cheers,
