I'm developing a front end to our subversion setup using WebDAV, XSL stylesheets and some php scripts to interface the svn binary. I wrote a simple shell script that sets up a project based on our tech policy (pretty standard stuff). However, the script won't run properly when executed by the apache user _www (OS X server). It complain's about not getting a password for _www. We do authentication through open directory so there are no .htaccess files controlling the authentication.
Can I somehow grant access to _www without having to type a password so that my scripts can run non interactive?
Adding this to Limit didn't help (although, removing the Limit tag altogether from the conf obviously works!):
Require user _www _www@MYSERVER
It should be noted that _www has recursive ownership rights to directory that holds my repositories.
