View Full Version : A subversion server that is secure (SSL) but doesn't allow SSH access

13th January 2007, 05:57 AM

I'm trying to make my home machine into a subversion server. I want it to be secure so, without putting too much thought into it, I'm thinking SSL should do the trick. But I don't want to give clients access to all my files.

Is it possible to connect to the subversion server through SSL (or some other encrypted connection) without having ssh access to the machine you are connecting to?

Use Apache-Subversion via https.

The svn book (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/) mentions securing http via SSL, but refers you to httpd documentation.

You'll want to setup access controls via httpd authentication.
