Re: Hook scripts not running when using http access

John:
   This is most likely caused by the fact that the commit is being
performed as a different user (I think it's wwwrun on sles) and with
a different environment. Since I don't know what all your hook
scripts are doing, it's kind of hard to pinpoint, but here are some
things to check on:

1. Does the wwwrun user have the rights to execute the hook script
and anything the hook script calls?
2. Do you make any assumptions regarding environment variables such
as PATH within the script? Some environment variable modifications
which may not be available from the shell when kicked off by commit
done via http.

   Hope that helps.

Cheers,
-craig
