I am a new subscriber to the mailing list, so please forgive me if this
has been solved before...


I am trying to configure my Subversion 1.3 running on Ubuntu 6.06 to use
LDAP authentication. I have found a couple of sites through Google that
offer how-to's on this, but none of them have solved my problem yet. I
have also run my configuration and resulting error message through our
'LDAP gurus' and all I get back is 'sorry, I don't know anything about
Subversion' or 'sorry, I don't know anything about DAV'.


The error message I get is:


[Mon Aug 21 15:08:41 2006] [warn] [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] [18875]
auth_ldap authenticate: user xxx authentication failed; URI
/svn/!svn/act/4630029f-3bd4-b14f-9fe5-4bb880f9ebdf [LDAP:
ldap_simple_bind_s() failed][Invalid credentials]


Here is a snippet of my apache2 conf file that deals with setting up the


<Location /svn>

 DAV svn

 SVNPath /repository

 AuthType Basic

 Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

 AllowOverride None

 order allow,deny

 allow from all

 AuthName "SVN Repository"

 AuthLDAPURL "ldap://servername.company.com:389/"


 AuthLDAPBindPassword "xxxxx"


 Require valid-user




My problem might be specific to my company in the CN and DC names, but
I've run those be multiple people internally and they feel that all of
that information is correct. Based on the ldap_simple_bind_s() error
message, I'm not even sure it's getting to that point before failing.


Any ideas?
