Please ignore. I was being thick. I've fixed it.

Subject: mod_authz_svn configured for per-directory access but allowing
access to everybody


I've attached my Apache configuration definition file (httpd.conf.txt) and my mod_authz_svn access control definition file (repos_access_control.txt). However, this configuration allows access to repositories and some more specific logical subdirectories within the repositories to *anyone*. Obviously, something is broken in my configuration. But since as far as I can tell, mod_authz_svn does not support logging for debugging purposes (does it?), I'm at a loss as to what the ultimate cause of the problem is.

For the record, I've read and understood http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-book.html#svn.serverconfig.httpd.authz.perdir. And in case you're wondering, our authentication handler works as designed. That is not the problem.

Have I misunderstood the format required by mod_authz_svn of our authorization definition file? Is one of the other [higher-scoped] Apache configuration directives perhaps overriding mod_authz_svn?

Please take a look at the setup and give feedback as to how I might zero-in on the problem and ultimately fix it.

Best Regards,
