Start by editing /etc/apache2/httpd.conf so that the httpd-subversion.conf file gets included.
There's no httpd-subversion.conf file by default, so we need to make one. On my system, it needs to contain the following:
LoadModule dav_svn_module libexec/apache2/mod_dav_svn.so LoadModule authz_svn_module libexec/apache2/mod_authz_svn.so <Location /svnrepos> DAV svn SVNParentPath /usr/local/svnrepos # the following svnindex.xsl (and svnindex.css) are located in the # server DocumentRoot dir, which is defined in httpd.conf with the following line: # DocumentRoot "/Library/WebServer/Documents" SVNIndexXSLT "/svnindex.xsl" # require SSL connection for password protection SSLRequireSSL # user authentication AuthType Basic AuthName "Subversion Repository" AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/subversion.auth # only authenticated users may access the repository Require valid-user </Location>
The .xsl and .css files were copied from my old server. They're just to make browsing the subversion repo more nice.
The subversion.auth file is generated using
htpasswd as follows, and stored in /etc/apache
sudo htpasswd -cm /etc/apache/subversion.auth my_user_name
After the command is issued, a password must be entered (twice).
Test the install by trying to access a subversion repository (presumably in /usr/local/svnrepos, according to the above config). You should be required to use a https connection, and be prompted for your username and password.
