svnserve and SASL problems

Hi there,


I'm in the process of setting up a new Ubuntu 9.04 server and am trying
to configure SVN. I've been following the guide here:


I've pretty much followed the guide exactly and have checked that I can
read the username:password in my sasldb. The realms are the same too.




            realm = svn_realm


            use-sasl = true

            min-encryption = 128

            max-encryption = 256



            pwcheck_method: auxprop

auxprop_plugin: sasldb

sasldb_path: /etc/svn_sasldb

mech_list: DIGEST-MD5


And this is my single user in my sasldb:

ubuntu-server:/etc/sasl2> sasldblistusers2 -f /etc/svn_sasldb

sjalloq_at_svn_realm: userPassword


However, when I try to connect using Tortoise (version 1.5.4 and now
1.6.3) I get the following error after being prompted for my username
and password.

Error: Authentication error from server: SASL(-13): user not found: no
secret in database


What else is weird is that in my auth.log I get a warning that
/etc/sasldb could not be opened:

            Jun 30 14:21:58 ubuntu-server svnserve: unable to open
Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: Permission denied

which suggests that svnserve isn't looking in the correct place.


What are my next steps for debugging?


Thanks, Shareef.
