SVN auth : passwd or htpasswd file ?
|Reported by:||Barbara Post||Owned by:||John Hampton|
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.
The following works, the password file contains cleartext passwords :
[account-manager] password_file = C:\Repositories\svn\Redcats_Ecocat\conf\passwd password_store = SessionStore,SvnServePasswordStore
The following does not works (MissingSectionHeaderError: File contains no section headers), the password file contains md5 hashed passwords :
[account-manager] password_file = C:\Repositories\htpasswd password_store = SessionStore,SvnServePasswordStore
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.
