Default subversion and ISPCONFIG 3

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.

Might be a firewall issue. Try to stop the firewall to see if it works then.

I have turned off the firewall. It still gives the same answer. Like I said I think this has some thing to do with the groups. On the server I login as a user that is part of the 'svn' group. So how can I add the group to ISPconfig?

You can not add such a group to ispconfig. Thats also not nescessary as ispconfig does not interact with SVN in any kind. ISPConfig is just a controlpanel that writes configuration files for various services, it does not filetr any kind of IP traffic.

OK - so I'll look else where. But I find it strange that same config files used on a working server (same OS and version) works and on the server that does not has one diff - ISPConfig.

Well as a newbie I have to trust your statements.

Thanks,
Johnf
