I'm working with an SVN repository on managed hosting for a client, using a login into the Linux server the client gave me. I don't think I can get root access as it's held by the managed hosting provider.
I see that the subversion repository is in /srv/subversion, but it's owned by the apache user and nobody seems to have its credentials. However, the managed hosting provider, presumably the one who would have the apache user's credentials, did not set up the repository! So, my questions are.
- How was the SVN server originally installed such that the apache user ended up owning the repo?
- How can I add/edit users to the SVN repo given that the conf subdirectory is locked away, owned by Apache (in Apache group) with 750 permission?
