How to change password for svn user from client


Hi All,

I have setup visual svn server standard edition on centos 6.4 and created SVN users so that they can connect from client and upload their file.

Is anybody know how can I change svn user password from client?


Regards,
Yogesh

Since you don't tell us what SVN client you're using, or how the users are authenticating, what do you think we can tell you? If you tried to look this up on the SVN forums, you'd see that you probably CANNOT do this, and it's for security reasons.

Hi TB0ne,

Thanks for the reply!!!

I tried using visual,tortoise and svnsubversion on client side but all these three doesn't provide the facility to change password. I checked the SVN forums also, they mentioned we cannot do this as a security reason but what if any user wants to setup his own password?

Users are authenticating from svn server only.

Sorry, but did you not understand the answers???? You CANNOT change the password from the SVN client...there MAY be ways to do it, depending on how the users are authenticating, but AGAIN, that is typically not the case 95%+ of the time. AGAIN, you do not change it from the client...AGAIN, it is insecure, which is why the feature is NOT SUPPORTED.

If a user wants their own password, then you have two choices, as the administrator:
  1. Tell the user no
  2. Ask the user what password they want, and set it according to data-security policies.
Doesn't get more simple than that.
