RE: Mixed Case Usernames - Linux Server

And that only covers authn, not authz. We have the same problem, and I'm getting fed up with asking my users if they got the case of their username correct (as in the same as in authz.conf)...

One work-around might be to use the 3rd-party SSPI authentication module instead, which has an option to convert to lowercase.

Does anyone have any thoughts or workarounds for this?

I have googled and searched around for a while but have not found a

 good answer. I have SVN running under apache on a linux box,

which used mod_authnz_ldap for authentication. Is there some way

to force all of the authenticated names to lowercase before loading

the AuthzSVNAccessFile? Or a way to make that file be case

insensitive? Any other workarounds or suggestions are welcome!
