Crowd-to-SVN integration - problem with AuthzSVNCrowdAccessFile

I tried to configure authorization for an SVN instance that is integrated with Crowd and ran into the following error:

Invalid command 'AuthzSVNCrowdAccessFile', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

I'm using CollabNet's SVN that is runnning on Red Hat Linux with Atlassian's Crowd-Apache Connector 2.0. Authentication against Crowd when not using AuthzSVNCrowdAccessFile directive works just fine. Any ideas anyone?

Hi Rafal,

Please, check what version of version of Red Hat Linux you're using. The error you mentioned usually occurs do to a Crowd Apache Connector invalid version (regarding the version of your OS). Please, try to rebuild this using the following documentation:


Thanks Leandro,

I've actually tried it on both Red Hat 5.3 and CentOS 5.5 and hit the problem on both machines. I've used rhel5.5/mod_authnz_crowd-2.0.1-1.x86_64.rpm on both. I had no problems with installation - I only hit the problem when trying authorization. Do you think rebuilding from source can fix it?

Hi Rafal,

I'm afraid it won't work with version 5.3, at least if you use rhel5.5. I've seen this error before. Nevertheless, I didn't try to rebuild from the source, I believe it's a good shoot.



Any idea what the root cause is? Like I said, I also tried with CentOS 5.5 which is rhel5.5 and it did not work...

No other idea, sorry :S

after rpm installed, module not added into httpd.conf, and configtest not passed

I add him into my subversion.conf, all working perfect (CentOS 5.8):

LoadModule dav_svn_module     modules/
LoadModule authz_svn_module   modules/
LoadModule authnz_crowd_module /usr/lib64/httpd/modules/
LoadModule authz_svn_crowd_module /usr/lib64/httpd/modules/
