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 repository.
The overall structure of the file is the same as the structure of Subversion user configu-
ration 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
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 reposi-
tory 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 = filename
The authz-db option controls the location of the authorization rules for path-based
access control. filename may be relative to the repository conf directory. There is
no default value. If you don't specify an authz-db, no path-based access control is
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
anon-access = none
auth-access = read
password-db = passwd
realm = My First Repository
The file "passwd" would look like:
joeuser = joepassword
jayrandom = randomjay
