the documentation for AuthzLDAPAuthoritative :
 <snip>Prevent other authentication modules from authenticating the user if this one fails</snip>
Default is on but you did set it to off, why? If ldap fails another authorization will be tried.
The main problems should be the line <snip> AuthType Digest</snip>. As far as I know you can use digest/MD5 password encryption with file authentification but not with LDAP. LDAP requires basic authentification. But beware that without any other security meachanism like VPN or SSL a simple network sniffer will be able to get the passwords from the network stream.

I am trying to implement ldap authentication into my configuration for svn running under apache2.2 (httpd2.2.24) running on Linux.
I have the following configuration, but it appears that it always fails to call the ldap server.
        <IfModule dav_svn_module>
                <Location />
                        DAV svn
                        SVNParentPath /opt/subversion/repos
                        SVNListParentPath On
                        AuthzSVNAccessFile /opt/subversion/svnaccess
                        AuthzLDAPAuthoritative off
                        AuthBasicProvider ldap
                        AuthType Digest
                        AuthName " DOMAIN.COM "
                        AuthLDAPBindDN "CN=TestSVN,OU=Users - Users,OU=Accounts,DC=CWIHQ,DC=CWIGINTRA,DC=COM"
                        AuthLDAPBindPassword "Password"
                        AuthLDAPURL "ldap://LDAP.DOMAIN.COM:389/DC=DOMAIN,DC=COM?sAMAccountName?sub?(objectClass=*)"
                        Require valid-user
                        # AuthUserFile /usr/subversion/apache2/conf.d/svnAuthBlank
It appears that ldap is never called, and the authentication attempts to fall back to the AuthUserFile, which I do not want.
I have checked multiple tutorials online and cannot see where I am going wrong. If I un-comment the AuthUserFile it fails to authenticate as the user does not exist in the file. 
Can anyone assist with this.
