Format of authz file :
http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/...-mod_authz_svn

Example:
http://svn.haxx.se/tsvnusers/archive-2006-10/0352.shtml
Code:
        *** passwd ***

        [users]
        fotini = fotinistricky
        hedley = hedleystricky
        kellie = kelliestricky
        neil = neilstricky

        *** authz ***
        [groups]
        training = fotini,hedley,kellie,neil

        [repository://localhost/svn-repos]
        training = rw
        * = r
This is For example only. Change files according to your path.

Thanks shah,

I finally made things go around.Well, hope you will also help me with this also.

I have SVN ready and working with SVN protocol.My manager says take the Backup to the remote Windows Server.
I have written the script as :
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
### /etc/cron.daily/svn-fullbackup for incre or full backup(not sure)

root@dicexx:/etc/cron.daily# vi svn-fullbackup
root@dicexx:/etc/cron.daily# cat svn-fullbackup


mount -t smbfs //1bangalore3/gice /mnt/win -o username=singhrainaa/groupinfra%Passw0rd,uid=singhrainaa
python /home/admin/svn-backup-dumps.py -z /home/admin/repo /mnt/win/
mail - "The Backup Is ready" root@localhost



root@dicexx:/etc/cron.daily#
So the script which I downloaded from net is working fine and I am taking the Backup from Linux to Windows machine.
Now with pretty things going around he wants me to put the zipped dump file named datewise just like 000.00038-02July2007 ..How can I go for it.

Help !!!

Script is not providing option for filename, so you have to change filename in python script only.

There is a function called create_dump in the script :
Code:
def create_dump(self, checkonly, overwrite, fromrev, torev=None):
...
filename = "%s.%s.svndmp" % (self.__reposname, r)
...
You are supposed tweak this line to add date.
I am not familiar with python, so i can't provide you exact syntax right now.
Here is the similar code in shell script.
Code:
#cat test.sh
TEMP1=`date +%d%b%Y`
echo $TEMP1
Meanwhile, I am trying to get hands on python. Will tell you if succeed.
