This is not a subversion question... but we do try to be helpful round here. Please do read the answers you are given and if you do not understand, ask (rather than guess and hope). Neither mod_dav nor mod_dav_svn are involved in passwords.

Ok, so you are using apache httpd. Apache deals with user _authentication_ (who you are) whilst subversion optionally deals with _authorisation_ (what you are allowed to do). Usernames and passwords are one way of proving who you are, so this is part of _authentication_.

So, again, it depends on how you have configured _authentication_. Read the httpd docs:-

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/howto/auth.html (for version 2.2)

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/howto/auth.html (for version 2.4)

...and then you can tell us which authentication method you are using and on which platform (and version) and hopefully someone will be able to help you.
