Re: DB Authentication for SVN

Hi Ryan
Thanx for the email.
This is the way we are currently following.
We are building a web based system where in a user who gets registered will have SVN permissions appropriate to the group he belongs to.
The disadvantages we foresee are
  • The script to generate the permissions is put in a cron and hence introduces a lag before the user gets SVN access.
  • Once the number of users/groups increases (say 100,000 and more) the script would take a lot of time to generate the file.
Is there any way where in I can call a custom script to check permissions from DB by modifying and regenerating mod_dav_svn or any other module.

I have been using the AuthzSVNAccessFile option to specify the access permissions for different users and groups.
Just wondering if there is a way to move this scheme into a database (say MySQL) ?

I don't think so. Well, you could certainly create a DB structure, store your permissions there, then create a script that reads this data out of the DB and creates a proper AuthzSVNAccessFile out of it. But I'm not aware of any script already created to do this.
