NAME
       svnserve.conf - Repository configuration file for svnserve

SYNOPSIS
       repository-path/conf/svnserve.conf

DESCRIPTION
       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
	    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  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
	    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.

EXAMPLE
       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.

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

       The file "passwd" would look like:

	[users]
	joeuser = joepassword
	jayrandom = randomjay
