Re: Repository web index

Sorry, Frank, I think I lost track of something. What file are you
referring to? The SVNListParentPath only takes On and Off, not a file.
I've got the SVNParentPath set up fine, as I am able to view my
individual repositories, I just can't get the index of repositories
set up.

I've found that if I take out all the authorization directives from
from svn section, I can get the index I'm looking for: as you said,
the AuthzSVN doesn't effect this, but I've told Apache that this
location needs authentication, and it doesn't know how to do it for
anything higher than a repo. I guess this might be getting outside the
realm of subversion and into general apache config, but if anyone can
help at all, I'd appreciate it. Ideally, I'd like to not have
authentication for the top level /svn location (which should show the
index of repositories) but still have the SVN auth for the individual
repositories. Here's my conf file:

 <Location /svn>
     DAV svn
     SVNParentPath /var/svn
     SVNListParentPath On
     SVNIndexXSLT /apps/svn/repos-web/view/repos.xsl.php

     # our access control policy
     AuthzSVNAccessFile /var/svn/conf/svn-users.conf

     # try anonymous access first, resort to real
     # authentication if necessary. Now out access control
     # policy file determines when you need to authenticate
     Satisfy Any
     Require valid-user

     # how to authenticate a user
     AuthType digest
     AuthName "Subversion repositories"
     AuthDigestProvider file
     AuthUserFile /var/svn/conf/digest_passwds
     AuthGroupFile /dev/null
