I didn't find anything like that either, and considered writing my
own PHP/MySQL-based repo browser plus repo manager plus hook manager
plus email notification manager plus working copy manager. But I
haven't had time yet.

The PHP SVN bindings in PEAR are not so much old or aging as never
exactly completed. I could never get them to install, and my mails
with the developer reached an dead end.

My project was to be full-featured and general-purpose, hence large,
hence it never got done. If all you want though is, in effect, a
single button labeled "Update the live site's working copy" which
calls a single shell script "svn up /path/to/working/copy" then that
sounds like scarcely more than a handful of lines of code right there.
