Subject Apache httpd 2.4 + Subversion 1.9.5 + LDAP combination does not work on CentOS 7.x
Date Mon, 17 Jul 2017 12:09:17 GMT

I've been using Apache httpd 2.2.23 with Subvesion 1..6.21 with LDAP on
CentOS 5.11 (old setup) for years now. Recently we planned to upgrade to
Subversion 1.9.x with Apache httpd 2.4.x, i've prepared the setup as per
the following with LDAP support :

1) compiled and installed Apache 2.4.16 from source
2) compile and installed Subversion 1.9.5 from source

I've the following snippet in my httpd config which works in old setup
perfectly but in the new setup it does not work at all, It can not control
the repo access:

<Location /svn/MyRepo>
    DAV svn
    SVNPath /var/repos/svn/MyRepo.
        Satisfy any
                Require valid-user
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
        AuthzLDAPAuthoritative on
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "Please use your Username and Password:"
        AuthLDAPBindDN "CN=Ac,OU=All Users,OU=myOU,DC=mydomain,DC=com"
        AuthLDAPBindPassword mypass
        AuthLDAPURL "ldap://
        AuthBasicProvider ldap
        AuthUserFile /dev/null
        AuthzSVNAccessFile /var/repos/permissions/permfile.txt


write-perm1 = user1, user2

@write-perm1 = rw
* =

After removing "AuthzLDAPAuthoritative on" (which is removed in Apache
httpd 2.4.x), it allows any ldap user to access the repo (which i do not
want). I want permfile to control the access to repo, but i could not see
an effective way to enable it.
Can somebody help here please?
