RE: Re: hook script basics

On windows, the hooks are executed with no env set. This means you need
to define any vars that are expected inside you bat file. It is also why
something may work when you run it manually but not as a hook.

Hi Ryan,


In the post-commit file, I only have del f:\temp\foo


... which worked upon committing a file.


I then placed;


svn info f:\jobs\cooljobs >> c:\temp\foo.txt


.. and it worked.


Why isn't svn update working while as a post hook? i did choose to
cache creds to simplify things. It does work as a stand alone batch

                        * problem *


                        I have a simple post-commit.bat file which
contains commands I want to call.


                        In my case the contents of the post commit is;


                        @echo off

                        C:\Progra~1\Subversion\bin\svn update --username
foo --password bar --no-auth-cache F:\Jobs\Cooljob



                        The F:\Jobs\Cooljobs is the local dir that sits
on the repo server itself as I checked out the repo on the same PC.


                        The username/pass is used for example only.


                        The file works if I exe it from a cli on the
repo server but not when I commit from another PC.


                        I expect it to work like so;


                        1 - User commits a file from some workstation.

                        2 - Repo executes the post commit which updates
a checked out copy on the server itself.


                Should work, provided you're checking out via http(s) or
svn(+ssh). Not sure how it is on Windows, but on UNIX, you'd also need
to make sure that the permissions of F:\Jobs\Cooljobs are such that the
user under which your repository is served is allowed to modify that


        Is there any thing else I am missing?


        Any error log I can check?


        Apache logs show no errors.


        When I run the post-commit.bat from the command line, it does
work. Its as though the post-commit.bat isn't being tickled or I cannot
see the error.


There is no hook script error log. If you want something logged, you
must do it yourself in your hook script.


Try a minimal hook script that does nothing other than appending
something to a logfile, stored in a location you know everyone has write
access to. On UNIX I would suggest the /tmp directory; I'm sure there's
an equivalent on Windows.
