SVN Subversion Troubles

SVN Subversion Troubles

SVN is great, yes. CVS was already great actually. Except that I've been struggling with a stupid bug/weird behaviour !

If like me you have the error :

"svn: Not authorized to open root of edit operation"

on a checkout even when you had the right to import your own files (and you are authenticated) ! So basically looks like you had the right to write something but not to read it ! Even if in the authz file you gave yourself all the rights on all the files...

Then praise for the following explanation :

edit the svnserve.cnf

and if like me you just wanted to avoid anonymous users by letting the line : "anon-access = read" commented, you re wrong ! You do have to specify "anon-access = none" and magically you can read your own files (yes even if you were of course authenticated, it has an effect).

I don't even try to understand... 5 Hours to find this.

    Yey! My damn repository was throwing that error after I authenticated. I fixed it now, thanks!

    I was about to give up all together when my last google came up with this. Looks like loads of people have their repositories readable by non-authorised people because of this...
