Re: Autoverioning Advice Needed

1. Setup svn to use Apache with SSPI. Get mod_auth_sspi from here:

See http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-serversetup.html
for more details on overall install, including info about SSPI. Pay
close attention to how you edit Apache's httpd.conf file.

2. The end of your httpd.conf should look something like this. Note
this gives you authentication, but not authorization; for that you'll
need to use AuthzSVNAccessFile.

<Location /svn>
DAV svn
SVNListParentPath on
SVNParentPath E:\svn
SVNAutoversioning on
ModMimeUsePathInfo on

AuthName "SVN Server"
AuthType SSPI
SSPIAuthoritative On
SSPIOfferBasic on #let non-IE clients authenticate
#SSPIOmitDomain On # keep domain name in userid string
                       # passed down to mod_authz_svn
Require valid-user # A Require directive may? prevent userid
                        # strings from being passed down to mod_authz_svn
# our access control policy enforced by mod_authz_svn
#AuthzSVNAccessFile "d:/svndav/svnaccess.conf"

3. Download WebDrive from
http://www.webdrive.com/products/webdrive/index.html. After the
install, add a new site with the url, server type WebDav. Click
Properties|HTTP Settings and disable (uncheck) "Enable persistent
connections (Keep-Alive). After you have a connection, open the
Program Settings|Cach Settings|Options and select Custom, Cache Files
and check all options. Set all boxes to 10 seconds.

4. In you WebDrive and other connections to the repository, you're
user id needs to be DOMAIN\userid, not just userid.
