svnserve.conf - Repository configuration file for svnserve




   svnserve.conf  controls  the  behavior of the svnserve daemon on a per-
   repository basis.  It is  located  in  the  conf  subdirectory  of  the

   The  overall  structure  of  the  file  is the same as the structure of
   Subversion user configuration files.  At the top  level  are  sections,
   which  are  specified  by words in square brackets; inside each section
   are variable  definitions  of  the  form  "variable  =  value".   Lines
   beginning  with '#' are ignored.  svnserve.conf currently uses only one
   section named "general", and supports the following variables:

   anon-access = none|read|write
        Determines the access  level  for  unauthenticated  users.   write
        access  allows  all repository operations.  read access allows all
        operations except committing  and  changing  revision  properties.
        none access allows no access.  The default level is read.

   auth-access = none|read|write
        Determines  the  access  level  for authenticated users, using the
        same access levels as above.  The default level is write.

   password-db = filename
        Sets the location of  the  password  database.   filename  may  be
        relative  to  the  repository conf directory.  There is no default
        value.  The password database has the same overall format as  this
        file.   It uses only one section "users"; each variable within the
        section is a username, and each value is a password.

   authz-db = path
        The authz-db option controls the  location  of  the  authorization
        rules  for path-based access control.  path may be relative to the
        repository conf directory.  path may be a repository relative  URL
        (^/)  or  absolute  file://  URL  to  a  text file in a Subversion
        repository.  There is no default value.  If you don't  specify  an
        authz-db, no path-based access control is done.

   realm = realm-name
        Sets   the   authentication  realm  of  the  repository.   If  two
        repositories have the same password database, they should have the
        same realm, and vice versa; this association allows clients to use
        a single cached password for several  repositories.   The  default
        realm value is the repository's uuid.


   The   following   example   svnserve.conf   allows   read   access  for
   authenticated users, no access for anonymous users, points to a  passwd
   database in the same directory, and defines a realm name.

    anon-access = none
    auth-access = read
    password-db = passwd
    realm = My First Repository

   The file "passwd" would look like:

    joeuser = joepassword
    jayrandom = randomjay
