SVN auth : passwd or htpasswd file ?

Reported by: Owned by: postb99 pacopablo normal AccountManagerPlugin normal svnserve 0.11

Description

Hello,

Sorry for filling a ticket but this may be helpful for other people to read the whole thing here. When things will be clear, I think I will update the wiki if it is relevant.

I've setup Trac 0.11.4 with AccountManagerPlugin and am confused by the following : when using SVN integration, one must provide the path of a password file.

[account-manager]


[account-manager]


So I feel confused because the SVN server I use (either VisualSVN, or SVN + USVN) use the second file, while Trac successfully uses the first file. So this means 2 files to maintain, right ?

Is my issue related to some missing svnserve configuration ?

Thanks for some light.

Barbara

Closing this ticket as it is not a bug but a misunderstanding of SVN server working capabilities : either in svnserve mode (required by Trac, passwords in cleartext), or httpd mode (the way I have it setup). Refer to SVN book to have details :)
