I've got a PHP script being executed by Apache (www user) :

echo 'SVN Client is ' . svn_client_version();
svn_auth_set_parameter(SVN_AUTH_PARAM_DEFAULT_USERNAME, "aczerwon");

I'm getting an error on the second line (first on reports 1.4.0 correctly) saying:

svn_auth_set_parameter(): svn error(s) occured\n13 (Permission denied) Can't open file '/root/.subversion/servers': Permission denied

Alan Knowles asked me to log this bug.  

reference / and looking at svn's source code.

According to Alan, you need to add svn_config_ensure("dir");
err = svn_config_ensure(opt_state.config_dir, pool);

Reproduce code:
Nothing special.  Simply install the svn extension and have Apache run a script and you get this error.

Function added but it doesn't do what you expect.

All this function does is ensure that the specified path looks like a subversion file.

I think what you want is

svn_auth_set_parameter(SVN_AUTH_PARAM_CONFIG_DIR, '/www/site/.svn');

If that's the case, can we then add that function?
