    Hi,

    this is a really neat looking tool. Very convincing.

    But, I could not make it work. I think I configured it right, but it does not create any directory in my repository space.

    It also reports no errors.

    I am using Linux (Ubuntu 8.10), Apache installed will all modules needed. The svn worked when I did a trial installation.

    What information do you need from me to help?

    Thanks
    Klaus

      I think, it is better to give you all configs:

      mod_cav_svn.conf:
      <Location /svn>
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath /data/repos
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "Subversion Repository"
        AuthUserFile /data/repos/userfile
        AuthzSVNAccessFile /data/repos/accessfile
         Require valid-user
        SSLRequireSSL
      </Location>

      config.inc.php:
      $CONF['database_type']             = 'mysql';
      $CONF['database_host']             = 'localhost';
      $CONF['database_user']             = 'mycredentials';
      $CONF['database_password']         = 'mycredentials';
      $CONF['database_name']             = 'svnmanager';
      $CONF['database_prefix']         = '';
      $CONF['database_innodb']        = 'YES';
      $CONF['session_in_db']            = 'YES';

      $CONF['encrypt']                 = 'system';
      $CONF['generate_password']         = 'YES';
      $CONF['logging']                = 'YES';

      $CONF['svn_command']            = '/usr/bin/svn';
      $CONF['grep_command']            = '/bin/grep';
      $CONF['use_javascript']            = 'YES';

      $CONF['SVNAccessFile']            = '/data/repos/accessfile';
      $CONF['AuthUserFile']            = '/data/repos/userfile';
      $CONF['ViewvcConf']                = '/viewvc-apache.conf';
      $CONF['ViewvcGroups']            = '/viewvc-groups';

      $CONF['ViewvcLocation']            = '/viewvc';
      $CONF['ViewvcApacheReload']        = 'sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 graceful';
      $CONF['ViewvcRealm']            = 'ViewVC Access Control';
      $CONF['createAccessFile']        = 'YES';
      $CONF['createUserFile']            = 'YES';
      $CONF['createViewvcConf']        = 'NO';

      $CONF['mail_password_warn']        = <<<EOM

      Hint: I tried to configure the repositories in the form "/data/repos/newrep". The /data/repos has full rights for reading and writing.

      Hallo,

      SVN Access Manager is for adminstering access rights to a subversion repository only. It's not made to create repositories. That's a thing you have to do yourself.

      Bye

        This tool seems perfect except for this.  Will this be added in the future?
        Cheers

      Im very busy in the moment. I can add this feature but it will require that the webserver will have write access to the folder your repositories are located.

      Regards

      Thomas
