Good day! We have a problem with an access to the remote repositories.
The structure of storage is the following: there is SVN-server,
Samba-server on which source codes are placed, all the users use Windows
with TortoiseSVN. Both servers are in one and the same subnet with
users. SVN and Samba are in different servers.

When user downloads his copy of repository into his home folder on
Samba-server and makes at list one modification in ANY files from this
copy, after this other user already has no any rights to change
something in any files of this copy. During the trial of the submitting
of the modifications TortoiseSVN displays an error-window:

Subversion reported an error while doing clean up!

In directory '[path_to_copy_of_repository]'

Error processing command 'commited' in '[path_to_copy_of_repository]'

Error replacing text-base of 'file.txt'

Can't set file

Read-write: access denied.


In the settings of Samba the following is written:



path = /var/www

read only = no

public = yes

browseable = yes

guest ok = no

valid users = [here_is_some_users]

writable = yes

force group = users

create mask = 0777

force create mode = 0777

directory mask = 0777


SVN-server(options during the starting of demon):





The folder with depositories has been chowned for apache:apache: chown
-R apache:apache /var/svn/


Apache piece of conf:

    <Location /test>

        DAV svn

        SVNPath /var/svn/test

        AuthType Basic

        AuthName "Subversion repository"

        AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-file

        Require valid-user

# SVNAutoversioning on

# DavGenericLockDB /var/svn/smartppc/locks



An access to repository is carried out by the URL:


Then the TortoiseSVN opens
