Why do I get "svn: authentication cancelled" error?

I seem to be able to svn from the command line just fine, but within PyCharm, I get the error "svn: authentication cancelled" for any SVN action.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

+1 on this!  I can't figure it out! I just formatted my box and now I get this error as well.  Bump!

Anything to do with svn.  How do you change the authentication for svn?  I would think if it failed it would give me a popup and let me try and change my password.  By anything I mean update, checkin, browse repo, etc.

You can try changing some SVN settings in the following dialog:

Settings (Ctrl+Alt+S), navigate to Version Control entry listed under "Project Settings', expand VCs->Subversion and on that pane you should see options for configuring or clearing auth details.

Clearing svn creds didn't work for me but eventually a helpful message in the top right appeared saying I needed to update my svn creds. Clicking that and updating fixed everything.

I resolved this problem by unchecking the "Use system default Subversion configuration directory" option, and manually specifying my subversion directory (in my case, /home/garyd/.subversion)
