Re: Is there a way to find out the filename and the location of the password file?

Are you using the svnserve command or Apache?

If you're using svnserve (i.e., you checkout "svn co svn://..." or
"svn co svn+ssh://", your Subversion configuration file is inside your
repository under the conf directory. The file is called svnserve.conf
and will contain the name of the password file. Look for the line
"password-db = <file>".

If you're using Apache (i.e. you checkout "svn co http://..." or "svn
co https://..."), things are a bit trickier. You have to examine your
httpd configuration files. Here, you could be using a file that
contains the passwords or a database of some sort.
