I am new to subversion and apache so after a lot of pitfalls and the help of
you all, I got the svn server up and running. But now I am facing a new
problem with http access. Let me explain my problem.


I have made changes to the httpd.conf file and the svn-access and user file.
The user file is created using htpasswd and has one user in it. I have set
the svn-access file to





Now, the problem is when I set anonymous access to rw using “*=rw” to access
the repository using tortoise, it works fine. I can add files, checkout and
everything. But when I set the above setting and remove the anonymous users
and try to add a file, or read the repository, it says “cannot do a
PROPFIND. Reason Forbidden access”. It doesn’t even ask for a password. I do
have the “Require valid-user” line in httpd.conf.


Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong here?


Thanks in Advance,
