Crowd/Subversion 1.7 Authentication Problem with mixed case repositorynames

Hi all,

I have a very strange problem with my Crowd 2.6.1 / Apache 2.2.22 / Subversion 1.7 setup.

Everything seems to work fine for repositories with lowercase name, but when I have a repository with mixed case I sometimes get access denied errors.

I am using SVNParentPath and AuthzSVNCrowdAccessFile.

This is an excerpt from the AuthzSVNCrowdAccessFile:

[TESTrepo:/]
username = rw

Error from svn log when commiting a file:

[Wed Apr 10 11:38:49 2013] [error] [client xxx] Access denied: 'username' MERGE TESTrepo:

However I can commit a file when I add the repository in lowercase to the AuthzSVNCrowdAccessFile:

[testrepo:/]
username = rw

Is there an option to treat the access file case insensitive? I rather not want to add every repository with upper and lowercase into the access file.

Thanks in advance

Take a look at Enforcing Lower-Case Usernames and Groups for an Application; you can configure this in Crowd so that Subversion will only see the lowercase versions.

Hi Joseph, thanks for your answer but the problem is not with usernames but with the name of the SVN-Repositories.
