RE: Query on SVN+SSH

The disadvantage for SVN+SSH access is that the users need to have shell accounts. It might be possible to have some login shell jiggery to make it so they can't log in, but if you really want to have control you need to use a server. If you are concerned about security, HTTPS over Apache is your best bet, otherwise SVN protocol can work to prevent the need for shell accounts, but is not secure.

Subject: Query on SVN+SSH

Dear Folks,
Can anyone please help me on this ??
I have installed SVN-1.4 on RHEL4 Box by RPM's
Further configured SVN+SSH access by
1) Creating System users on the Box.
2) Wrapper script to embed svnserve
Like all steps in http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2004-03/0253.shtml
and it works fine....
But problem is users can logon onto Box and delete entire REPO !!!
Further I was exploring http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/notes/ssh-tricks
But this doesnot work fine...
Any ideas on How to configure svn+ssh which uses system users and no shell access to these users ??
Thanks in Advance for your help,
