I'm getting "Error: Authorization failed" when accessing SVN freshly installed
on CentOS 8.
My only clue is that the header on the TortoiseSVN "Commit" screen is
"svn://MyDomain.com/ScriptStuff(ATL)/trunk" when in fact the repository was
installed at "var/svn" on the CentOS server hosting "MyDomain.com".
I'd be obliged if someone can spot my misstep or knowledgeably speculate on why
the realm set to ScriptStuff in the server somehow morphed into
"ScriptStuff(ATL)" in the TortoiseSVN commit screen on Windows 10.
Here's what I did starting with installing SVN on CentOS 8 and ending with
accessing the remote CentOS server using TortoiseSVN on Windows 10:
1) In CentOS 8 as root used "svnadmin create /var/svn" to create repository at
2) In CentOS 8 as root started the svnserve daemon: "svnserve -d -r /var/svn"
3) In CentOS 8 as rootEdited /var/svn/conf/svnserve.conf to include:
auth-access = read
auth-access = write
password-db = passwd
...authz-db = authz
realm = ScriptStuff
4) In CentOS 8 as root edited /var/svn/conf/passwd "[users]" block to include:
User1 = UsrPasswd
5) In Windows 10 using Mozilla (FireFox) tested successfully with
6) In Windows 10 using Windows Explorer launched TortoiseSVN Settings/Network
Enable Proxy Server checked
Server address set to "svn://MyDomain.com/ScriptStuff"
Username set to "User1"
Password set to "UsrPasswd"
7) In Windows 10 when I right click on a directory in Windows Explorer to
upload the directory to the repository using "SVN Commit", the heading reads:
8) Continuing the commit process in Windows 10 I get "Error: Authorization
failed" even when flushing the TortoiseSVN Saved Data and signing in manually
Username as "User1"
Password as "UsrPasswd"
Your thoughts and comments will be appreciated!
