RE: RE: Multiple Repositories - Single Authentication

What Lieven describes is what we use, individual svnserve.conf files
that point to share user and authz files.

One thing to be aware of is that you cannot use absolute paths inside of
svnserve.conf, only relative paths.
For instance we have a structure where all our repositories are under
C:\SVN-Data and all our authentication information is under C:\SVN-Auth.
So my svnserve.conf file looks like this

        anon-access = none
        password-db = ../../../SVN-Auth/svnmanager_svn_password_file
        authz-db = ../../../SVN-Auth/svnmanager_access_file
        realm = Repositories (controlled by SVNManager)

Hope this helps.

Subject: RE: Multiple Repositories - Single Authentication

are you talking about svnserve.conf or authz (the Single Authentication
in the mail subject)?
As far as I know, svnserve.conf cannot be shared, but in those
svnserve.conf files you can refer to one authz file, in which you can
define path-based authz for all your repositories.

        I hope somebody can help. We use Subversion extensively and have
multiple repositories usually separated by clients (though not always).
We host the system on Windows (sorry not my choice!) and use svnserve to
access the data. I would like to know if there's any way of using a
single svnserve config file to govern all the repositories other than
trying to create some kind of symbolic linking between projects.
