Recommendation #1 - upgrade to something more current (e.g. 1.4.6) on
both the client and server. There aren't going to be any fixes applied
to the 1.3.x branch (barring extremely serious security fixes). There
are few (if any) developers who still run such an old version, so you
are automatically limiting the number of people who can assist you.

Recommendation #2 - use a real post-commit script, rather than some
time-based updates. Since you didn't tell us anything about your
environment (SVN server O/S, web server O/S, client O/S, etc), it's hard
for me to recommend anything specific. I did write SVN::Notify::Mirror*
specifically to make it very easy to create sophisticated post-commit hooks.

What path do you have checked out on the web server?

What happened when you tried to manually run the `svn up` command in the
website's working copy (before you explicitly updated the new_dir)?
Basically, the narrative you have described has very little detail of
the kind needed for anyone to help to resolve this for you. What would
be best is a reproduction recipe: what you typed, what the software
responded, etc, so someone can try and recreate your issue. And of
course, you need to tell us a lot more than just the [outdated] version
of the Subversion software...
