I used the openSUSE 11.3 perfect server and installed ISPConfig 3. And all works. Thanks for the howto. However, I now need to have svnserve working. I installed the normal required rpm's and created my repositories. On the server I can retrieve files and commit files as a normal user. To allow this I had to add the group 'svn' and then add the user as being a member of the group 'svn'.
Now to the trouble. On any other computer (on the lan or wan) I can retrieve files from the repositories but I can not commit. I get the 'Authorization Failed' error. I believe this is due to ISPConfig getting in the way. I believe this because on the server a normal user works. The ISPConfig 3 firewall has the correct port open. But I believe because the commit requires the group 'svn' I can't get the commit to work.
Am I right about this? Or am I missing something. I do not want to use a http service for svn. Just the old svnserve where I can set the passwords in plain text etc.
Thanks in advance - I know there has to be a way to get this done.
