I need to setup & maintain easily many Subversion repositories and make each of them accessible for strictly specified list of users only. No anyonymous checkout (no read access). What authorization scenario should I use here

1 Answer 1


you can use subversion through ssh (svn+ssh://) with unix based access privileges.

  1. Create users on your subversion server (adduser)
  2. Create user groups (groupadd) and add users to groups
  3. Create svn projects
  4. chgrp -R accessgroup1 svnproject1, ...
  5. chmod -R g+rwx svnproject1

Thats about it. I hope I was clear enough.
