Digest authentication not working on default Apache installation on Slackware 12.1


Why is this working:
Code:
<Location /repo>
    DAV svn
    SVNPath /srv/repo

    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "NONE SHALL PASS"
    AuthDigestDomain /repo
    AuthUserFile /srv/auth/svn-auth-basic-file
    #AuthUserFile /srv/auth/svn-auth-digest

    Require valid-user
    #Allow users of a certain authentication level read-only access
    AuthzSVNAccessFile /srv/auth/svn-access-file

    #WebDAV accessibility settings
    SVNAutoversioning on
    ModMimeUsePathInfo on
</Location>
but this isn't?
Code:
<Location /repo>
    DAV svn
    SVNPath /srv/repo

    AuthType Digest
    AuthName "NONE SHALL PASS"
    AuthDigestDomain /repo
    #AuthUserFile /srv/auth/svn-auth-basic-file
    AuthUserFile /srv/auth/svn-auth-digest

    Require valid-user
    #Allow users of a certain authentication level read-only access
    AuthzSVNAccessFile /srv/auth/svn-access-file

    #WebDAV accessibility settings
    SVNAutoversioning on
    ModMimeUsePathInfo on
</Location>
Could my digest file be bad? Is there a rule for what to put in for realm? Also, the server is operating with 127.0.0.1 for ServerName.

Try using AuthDigestFile as opposed to AuthUserFile (and htdigest as opposed to htpasswd):

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/howto/auth.html#digest

I used htdigest for svn-auth-digest, and the example on http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod...th_digest.html uses AuthUserFile: putting AuthDigestFile instead of AuthUserFile causes Apache 2.2 to throw up an error with AuthDigestFile as an unrecognized keyword on restart.

httpd -v:
Code:
Server version: Apache/2.2.8 (Unix)

It appears that Digest authentication only looks for users with a realm matching AuthName. Why isn't this documented anywhere?
