RE: Subversion Hook succeeds inconsistently (very strange)

I am using the Apache2 MPM "prefork" right now. I tried worker but not much changed. If this is related to umask/uid/gid, is there a way to configure apache or even the location to not inherit the umask/uid/gid and use its own?

Thanks,
Brad

It looks like mod_php{,5} messes with umask, uid and gid settings.
Since these are global, mod_dav_svn is influenced by them.

Bye,

Erik.
