How do I setup SVN (On a linux box - Centos 5.2) to authenticate using Active Directory?


  • Any tips or tricks?
  • What should I watch out for?
  • How fine grain can I set the access? This group have access to these projects, etc?

And how does this work if I use something like tortoissvn to access my repository?

What I have learned so far:

you need the following modules installed for apache

  • mod_ldap
  • mod_authnz_ldap
  • mod_dav
  • mod_dav_svn
  • mod_authz_svn?

Welcome to Serverfault. While this link does appear to contain an answer to the original question there is a tendency over time for links to go out of date, disappear, etc. A brief description of the answer with the link included as support/further detail will likely prove more useful over time. – rnxrx Oct 25 '12 at 0:46
