DBM file authentication

Hi fellow SVN users,

I am wondering about AuthDBMUserFile with SVN.

I see people on this email list using AuthUserFile, and I have successfully tested authentication with AuthUserFile on my test server...

But I believe that file format is restricted to two columns only with an end-o-line character required at the end of the encrypted password, (but I want more;) I would like to be able to append other info to the end of that line. I believe AuthDBMUserFile can handle this but I have not been able to get it to work.

I have created a DBM file using dbmmanage that contains only one user:encryptedpassword, and I provided the path in the httpd.conf file ... but am I supposed to declare the file type in the httpd.config file? If so, how can I determine my file type that I've created?

So far I have something like this:
<AuthnProviderAlias file fileDBM>
   AuthDBMType default|SDBM|GDBM|NDBM|DB
   AuthDBMUserFile /path/to/MyDBMfile.pag

I have also included this line in the <Location > block for my test repository":
   AuthDBMUserFile fileDBM
   AuthzDBMAuthoritative Off

So my whole location block looks something like this:
<Location /testDir>
   DAV svn
   SVNParentPath /path/to/testDir
   AuthType Basic
   AuthDBMUserFile fileDBM
   AuthzDBMAuthoritative Off
   AuthName "Testbed Subversion Repository"
   Require valid-user

I can see mod_authz_dbm and mod_authn_dbm are loaded on my production server. So I think they are also on my test server, but I don't know how to check.

Any suggestions?
