Hi Uli

>> This did not help. In which book?

Okay thanks.

> One thing first: you do have the Apache server running on an MS Windows machine, right? If not, the advise to change the hook's name to *.bat would be futile, on Unix-like systems you would need to set the file's executable bit (chmod +x ..)!
Yes, we are running apache to access the repository.

> Next, check that normal operation works, i.e. checking in and out. If this doesn't work completely, it might be a proxy in between. Some proxies require special configuration before they handle WebDAV commands properly.
Checkout and commit work well over http. Also all that show log stuff from tortoise.

> Then, the user that the Apache process is running as of course needs to have access to the hook script. If this was not the case, I think you should see something in the Apache logfile, but I don't use Apache here, let alone under win32, so I'm not really sure.
The user has access to the hook scripts. But I do not see anything special in the apache logfile...

> There was also a way to cause libneon (the library used for WebDAV) to supply more debug information. This could help determine what WebDAV request failed exactly.
I'll try to figure that one out

> Lastly, what you could try, would be to try to change the property by accessing the repository via the file:// access method. This requires a shell on the very machine that Apache is currently running on but it rules out that something in the network communication is messed up.
I think it's not good if one access the repo using apache AND file://, doesn't the repository get corrupt if two people commit at the same time? Our repsitory is live and about 30 people are working with it...

> If not even that works, I'd suggest you start from the opposite direction, i.e. you first create a repository on your local machine and then try to configure the hook script there, moving the whole thing step by step to your target setup until you know which change caused it to fail.
At least this works on my local computer. I think it could also be that there is an open port to that machine missing.

At the moment, we have the following ports open to our subversion server:
443: https
902: VMWare console
80: HTTP
139: Windows file Sharing
3389: Remote Desktop

May we need a WebDav Port or the like as well?


good luck!
