RE: Access is denied error on commit

Thank you for your responses.

It was permissions. The Subversion service (svnserve) was logging on as
'network service' which did not have 'full control' access to the repository
directory. I changed the logon of the svnserve service to a logon with full
control and it started working! I wish I knew what changed that caused
this, but it is a huge relief to have it working again.

You are ;-) He is using svn:// protocol, so only svnserve needs write
access. But permissions is certainly something to check.
