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
       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 = 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
