This is classic. Create a post-commit hook script that runs 'svn up'
in the "live web" working copy.

This is five releases behind, quite scary. You really should be using

Yes, use Unix permissions. This is a basic Unix permissions problem.
Create an 'svn' group and make the repository owned by that group.
Make sure all the developers are in the group, and use sane umasks. :-)
