Re: Returncode 1 when invoking SVN from a PHP-script

Ryan,

thank you for your help.
I didn't think of the possibility that there could be error-messages not
shown to me.

After the change, adviced by you, I got a message telling me that SVN
was not able to get access to the directory '/root/.subversion'. This
surprises me as I added a parameter --username that holds the userid of
Apache and I expected that I needed the configuration-data in a
subdirectory for that userid.
I was now able to solve the problem by adding a paramater --config-dir,
so I can go on now. But as I said, I do not understand why I need it.

Again, thank you very much. It is good that some people are willing to
react on a forum like this and help others out.
