I’ve installed WebSVN to work with Dreamhost’s auto-SVN repo installer. Unfortunately for my case, one of the repos (currently only one, actually) will need to be password protected.
I’ve tried to follow the instructions in the Wiki:
…but I don’t completely understand the step of “Use the panel to make a restricted htaccess file. Add all the users you might want regardless of repository.”
Does this mean that I would have to manage both the htaccess file and the authentication of SVN separately? Isn’t there a way to link all of the files - AND to do it so that the index view of WebSVN isn’t protected, but the subdirectories (project repos) are protected as they should be?
They say, “Practice makes perfect,” yet they also say, “Nobody’s perfect”. I don’t get it.
