I had the same problem when I upgraded. I tracked it down to the LDAP
modules. When I replaced the new LDAP modules that came with the
binaries with the old ones I had in my backup directory, everything
worked. The LDAP modules that I use (I'm not where I can access my
server right now so I don't know whose LDAP module I'm using) has a .dll
that goes with them. I suspect that the new .so files need an updated
.dll file and I was too lazy to go find one. The old modules work with
the old .dll and the new apache so I'm content.

Subject: LDAP authentication broke after SVN upgrade 1.1.1 to
Thanks for reading. I really enjoy using SVN and you developers
are doing great work. I just have a problem with LDAP authentication
since upgrading to your latest and greatest SVN 1.2, and hope you have
seen the problem before and can help me out.
I had an Apache 2.0.52 running under SVN 1.1.1, and my apache
configuration was using LDAP authentication so that anyone to access the
repository had to authenticate to the LDAP. It worked very nicely.
When upgrading to SVN 1.2, SVN warned me to upgrade to Apache 2.0.54,
which I did. Then I installed SVN 1.2. Now every time I try to access
the repository I get the authentication box, but when I fill in my
credentials and click OK, Apache crashes on the server, and the client
gets nothing. Nothing else has changed but the Apache and SVN versions.
Can you help?
Here is my relevant Apache configuration:
LoadModule ldap_module modules/util_ldap.so
LoadModule auth_ldap_module modules/mod_auth_ldap.so
LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so
DocumentRoot "c:/Subversion Repositories"
SVNPath "c:/Subversion Repositories/fhss"
# try anonymous access first, resort to real
# authentication if necessary.
# how to authenticate a user
AuthName "Subversion repository"
# Of the two authentication modes below, the BYU LDAP is
# best usually because it means each developer signs in
# their own Route Y Net ID and password.
# Sometimes the BYU LDAP is down, and we must redirect
# authentication to our own devices. To swap modes,
# which line below is commented out.
# AuthUserFile "C:/Subversion
# The fhss-svn-auth-file worries about who gets what
