Re: Hook Scripts (Svn mirror)

Hi Hari,

The details are as follows

Master SVN - host1
/usr/local/svn/test - repository

drwxrwx--- 7 svn apache 4096 Nov 28 15:57 test

Mirror SVN - host2

drwxr-xr-x 6 svnsync svngrp 4096 2007-11-28 12:57 svnsync

Created the mirror on host2 by first creating svnsync user and synchronizing the data between master and mirror.

On master did the following

svnsync init --username svnsync svn+ssh://svnsync@host2/home/svnsync/svn file:///usr/local/svn/test

svnsync synchronize --username svnsync svn+ssh://svnsync@host2/home/svnsync/svn

Since all the transactions are being done at the master svn server the post-commit
and post-rev-changes hooks are present on the master svn

post-commit hook -
/usr/local/bin/svnsync synchronize --username svnsync
        svn+ssh://svnsync@host2/home/svnsync/svn &;

/usr/local/bin/svnsync copy-revprops --username svnsync
       svn+ssh://svnsync@host/home/svnsync/svn $REV &;

Now whenever the changes are done in the master svn repository
the changes don't get mirrored to the mirror svn. As a workaround
i make use of cron. Has it got something to do with permission on
the hook scripts.

-rwxrwx--x 1 svn apache 176 Nov 28 12:45 post-commit
-rwxrwxr-x 1 svn apache 184 Nov 28 12:45 post-revprop-change

I have setup SVN mirror and it seems to be working absolutely fine. The problem is the hook-scripts which aren't invoked whenever a commit is done to source repository. The same works fine if i put the entries in the cron. Is there a way to overcome this problem or crontab is the only way out.
  Can you be a little more specific? Are the hook scripts not working only in the mirror? Or is not working in the main server as well as in the mirror? Somehow from your email subject and its body it seems like the problem is related to svn mirroring, but it is not clear how. Please explain how you created the mirror etc and where the problem is.
 The hook scripts are not supposed to be run as cron. They are run in the context of a transaction (pre or post).
 Please read the following link to debug your hook scripts.
