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?
