Help with Administration installation

maria daniela rivero caraballo
Hello, I'm working on Insurrection installation at my web server (Apache 2 on Centos 5.6). I'm particularly interested in the administration part of this project to be able to manage users and permissions without go to the server console. But I had some problems to discover how to enabling this part. I follow the "Debian install how to" from the trunk repo, and many "installation instructives" whitch I found at Insurrection Topics but I can't get it. I don't know where tell it to use the admin.pl for example.
Please can anybody tell me where found some more clear instructions about this part? Or some more information?
Of course I have my repos working on web and the style view of Insurrection is working fine.
Sorry for my english, it is some primitive.

Thanks in advance.

The key point for the web based admin is to make a repository that will then contain the administration folder for Insurrection.

The perl code uses that repository to make the admin changes which then allows full audit trail of who made what change.  This also then lets you make that repository available via normal SVN access to those admins who may wish to manually admin the server remotely.  This allows the admin to just check in updated files and the server will automatically pick that up.

How to do this requires a few hooks in the setup as can be seen here, I think, in the .htauth directory in the source tree.  If not, I may need to make this available.

I have been away from playing with Insurrection for 3 years now - mainly because it works and is solid in the places where it is installed and also because where I work now we don't use it (so sad) but there is a good reason for that (can't say what).

Thanks Michael for take time to respond. I had to leave this project for a while cause my boss  assigned me some works  to do first. Now I'm back.
So, every thing you said, I've already done. I put my access and password files in a subversioned repo which I referenced in the insurrection.pl file by the $SVN_AUTH variable.
I think it is a path problem.
Here my whole variables at insurrection.pl:

our $SVN_INDEX_TITLE = 'Servidor SVN Desarrollo';

our $SVN_BASE = '/mnt/data';

our $SVN_AUTH = '/mnt/data/Auth';

our $SVN_LOGS = '/mnt/data/SVNlogs';

our $SVN_BIN = '/usr/bin/';

our $SVN_URL_PATH = '/';

our $SVN_REPOSITORIES_URL = '/svn/';

## The specific binaries we use
our $SVN_CMD = $SVN_BIN . 'svn';
our $SVNLOOK_CMD = $SVN_BIN . 'svnlook';
our $SVNADMIN_CMD = $SVN_BIN . 'svnadmin';

The repos on my virtual server lies under /svn (Alias).

I don't know what else to do. Clearly I'm not an expert, but I think it   doesn't be so difficult.
I apreciate your grateful help.

Regards
