Re: Permission denied when import a project to subversion

I have change the permission of my 'db' directory to be 777. But when
i commit files from a directory, it has worked for a while. And then i
get a permssion denied message at a file.

And idea why?

# pwd
/srv/svn/repositories/sample/db
# ls -la
total 36
drwxrwsr-x 5 svn svn 4096 Jan 13 21:43 .
drwxr-xr-x 7 svn svn 4096 Jan 13 21:43 ..
-rwxrwxrwx 1 svn svn 6 Jan 13 21:43 current
-rwxrwxrwx 1 svn svn 2 Jan 13 21:43 format
-rwxrwxrwx 1 svn svn 5 Jan 13 21:43 fs-type
drwxrwxrwx 2 svn svn 4096 Jan 14 10:19 revprops
drwxrwxrwx 2 svn svn 4096 Jan 14 10:19 revs
drwxrwxrwx 2 svn svn 4096 Jan 14 10:19 transactions
-rwxrwxrwx 1 svn svn 37 Jan 13 21:43 uuid
-rwxrwxrwx 1 svn svn 0 Jan 13 21:43 write-lock

But here is the error message?

Adding mozilla/aclocal.m4
subversion/libsvn_subr/io.c:376: (apr_err=13)
svn: Can't open '/srv/svn/repositories/snapshot/db/current.tmp':
Permission denied
