svn: Not authorized to open root of edit operation

by jagbir on June 2, 2008

I got this error from subversion running as daemon while trying to checkout the repository:

$ svn co svn://192.168.0.1/nomanager --username svnadmin
Authentication realm: <svn://192.168.0.1:3690> Nomanager Repository
Password for 'svnadmin':
svn: Not authorized to open root of edit operation

To solve this issue, you need to update the svnserve.conf file of that repository:

$ vi /svn/nomanager/conf/svnserve.conf

Change the line non-access = read to anon-access = none and try again.
