I thought I will write a short note about how I got authorization to work under my box.I lived with this for quite sometime until today I think I got authorization to work under websvn.
There is a path to tell websvn where is the authorization file, but unfortunately if I specify this file it all goes wrong.That file is include/config.php at this line

Quote:
$config->useAuthenticationFile(''/etc/svnusers'');


Instead I wrote the authorization under /etc/apache2/modules.d/47_mod_dav_svn.conf OR under the virtual host that is being used to access the websvn.It will work fine to authorize users

Quote:
<Location /websvn>
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Authorization is required to access my reps"
AuthUserFile /etc/svnusers
Require valid-user
</Location>


That issue of uncommenting the line under include/config of the websvn is what confused me and got me stuck for quite sometimes :D

Complete reference of how to setup svn/websvn
