RE: Authentification problem

Here's a copy of my httpd.conf and access file. Your modules must be loaded
in this order. Not sure about Windows servers but if on unix Apached must be
the user and owner of all files, I chose www. If you only serve ONE
repository use SVNPath as opposed to SVNParentPath used for MULTIPLE REPOS.

I noticed you have disabled the authentification directives, you must enable
the following lines:

Require valid-user
AuthType Basic # you must have some basic authentification
AuthName "Subversion Access"
AuthUserFile /local1/svn/conf/svn-pwd-file #wherever your pw file is....

------------I use the following in my httpd.conf------------------
LoadModule dav_module /usr/lib/httpd/modules/mod_dav.so
LoadModule dav_svn_module /usr/lib/httpd/modules/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module /usr/lib/httpd/modules/mod_authz_svn.so
LoadModule rewrite_module /usr/local/apache2/modules/mod_rewrite.so
User www
Group www

<Location /svn>

DAV svn

SVNPath /local1/svn
#SVNParentPath /local1/svn

AuthzSVNAccessFile /local1/svn/conf/svn-access-file
#Satisfy Any
Require valid-user
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Subversion Access"
AuthUserFile /local1/svn/conf/svn-pwd-file

-------------------------end of file---------------------

My access & pw files reside in /local1/svn/conf

The password file has encrypted passwords in it and AuthUserFile in
httpd.conf points to it.

Hereís a simple snapshot of the access file:

----------------------Access File-----------------------------------

#password-db = svn-pwd-file
#realm = svn access
#anon-access = read
#auth-access = write


svnAdmin = samR
svnTags = samR
svnWriteGroup = user1, user2, user3,
svnReadGroup = user5, user6
svntesters = testuser

* = r
@svnAdmin = rw

@svnWriteGroup = rw
@svnReadGroup =

@svnTags = rw
@svnWriteGroup = r
@svnReadGroup = r

@svntesters =

---------------------------- end of file------------------------

i have a problem with using tortoise. i have a windows server with
apache 2.0.55 and svn 1.3.0 running on it. When i use tortoise to
connect on it, updating and committing my documents on new versions is
no problem. but when i am trying to request a lock for documents, then i
get an apache error respond: "401 Authorization Required"

My Subversion configuration in the httpd.conf looks like the following:
<Location /svn>
     DAV svn
     SVNParentPath D:\svnTest\test1
# AuthType Basic
# AuthName "Subversion repositories"
# AuthUserFile D:\svnTest\test1\svn.pass
# Require valid-user

i load / unload the modules listed below:

LoadModule access_module modules/mod_access.so
