I'm trying to start subversion with my own sasldb file specified in different place than /etc/sasldb2.
My config:
pwcheck_method: auxprop
auxprop_plugin: sasldb
sasldb_path: /srv/svn/sasldb2
mech_list: DIGEST-MD5
User permissions: drwxr-x--- 3 svn svn 4,0K 11-28 19:35 svn, no chroot

Everything configured according to Subversion - openSUSE. And I got error: svnserve: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory.
