Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I have

anon-access = write

Everything works fine. When I change svnserve.conf to:

anon-access = none
auth-access = write

And uncomment password-db and authz-db AND add user in authz with rw AND put username/password in passwd, nothing works. Eclipse keeps giving me a "Cannot map the project with svn provider" error.

I have given all the files under conf 777.

Any ideas what's wrong?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Could you try the commandline svn client? The errors from the commandline client are far more "googleable". Example: svn checkout full.path.to/your/svn/repository dir –  Koert Feb 5 '10 at 19:21

I commented out


in svnserve.conf. Everything OK now.
