I had just build subversion repository with apache mod_dav_svn plugin, so the dev team can do any versioning process with usual port of httpd. it works quite smoothly, they did checkout/update/commit process from other network until they found the problem when access the server ssh-ly to perform some checkout process, they need to update some working copy on the server for sample development tags in httpd doc root, only root can checkout/update some working copy on the server, every user that already allowed by "AuthUserFile" config always got denied message to do that.
I thought the only possibly config that related for this is
AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-conf AuthzSVNAccessFile /etc/svn-acl-conf
i'd tried several times to change the config file related to that things, but no result..
