Apache + SSL + SVN

(Feb 26, 2008)

(previous posts:
1. Apache+OpenSSL
2. SVN + Apache

From my two previous posts above, I discussed about SVN + Apache and Apache + OpenSSL separately. Now, it's time to put things together.

There are two possibilities for doing this. First, we may allow users to use SVN in both secure and insecure manners. Second, we may force users to only use SVN in a secure manner.

If we want to allow both, we put SVN configuration outside secured virtual host. If we want to enforce secured SVN, just move the SVN configuration inside secured virtual host configuration.

Note: the SVN configuration I mentioned is

<Location /super_angel>
DAV svn
SVNPath E:/svn_repos/super_angel

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Subversion Super-Angel repository"
AuthUserFile c:/etc/svn-auth-file

Require valid-user

AuthzSVNAccessFile c:/etc/svn-acl

Apache SSL said...

I've recently taked into account the need for SSL and so have been trying to configure this on Apache. I have found bits of your post really helpful to me, and I'm almost fully set up and configured on Apache (finally).
